Wendy recently completed a Ph.D. in the Critical and Comparative Studies program in the McIntire Department of Music at the University of Virginia. Her research deploys the methods of ethnomusicology and digital humanities to explore the complex interrelationships between popular music and geography in transnational contexts. Her dissertation, an ethnography of Asian American independent rock musicians, interrogates the ethnic, racial, and geographical boundaries of “Asian America” in the post-9/11 United States. She implemented methods of digital fieldwork to map the social networks of the musicians in her dissertation research. She has articles forthcoming in Popular Music from Cambridge and in Asian Journal of Communication from Routledge. In addition to her doctoral work at UVA, Wendy was honored as a HASTAC Scholar, served as a fellow at UVA’s Scholars’ Lab, and has taught courses on popular music, transnationalism, and digital music-cultures. She also plays with the vintage Asian garage pop revivalist band Dzian!, the house band of THATCampVA 2010.
