Joshua Luo

Areas of Interest:



Joshua Luo (he/him/his) is a first-generation Han Chinese immigrant who moved to the United States at the age of 14 from Beijing, China. He graduated from Hampshire College in 2022 and holds a degree in East Asian and Asian American Studies. As a first year MA student in Asian American Studies at UCLA, he is primarily interested in the intersection of Sinophone/Chinese and Uyghur diaspora politics and culture in North America, with a particular emphasis on the possibility for decolonial and anti-imperial solidarity against multiple empires in the context of escalating US-China tensions. In his spare time, he enjoys reading sci-fi, playing roguelike video games, and collecting very very old computer keyboards.
