About Suisui Wang

My name is Suisui (pronounced as sway-sway) Wang and I am a third-year PhD student of Gender Studies at Indiana University. An interdisciplinary ethnographer, I am broadly interested in health humanities, science and technology studies, and transnational feminism, disability studies, and sexuality studies. My dissertation research examines the multi-scalar mobilization and materialization of SOGI (sexual orientation and gender identity) in China through transnational expertise, advocacy networks, and therapeutics. 

I was born in Hunan Province in central China and his hometown is encircled by rivers and mountains. Although I am mostly away from hometown, I have remained unchangeable love for spicy food and watery regions.
