Brigitta Lee is currently an assistant professor in the East Asian studies department, where she teaches and conducts research related to early medieval Chinese literature. As a researcher, she is particularly interested in questions of cultural memory, literary influence and what the study of the writing and anthologizing pre-modern poetry can tell us about the formation of the Chinese cultural tradition. She is also very interested in advancing teaching effectiveness and in helping other faculty incorporate learning-centered approaches into their teaching. She is originally from Montana and still has strong ties to the Big Sky State. She joined CSW in 2014 to get more involved in institutional life at the UA outside of her own department. In addition to helping facilitate its mini-grants program and the Vision Awards, she would like to see the workgroup help CSW become more visible on campus through a more robust and interactive website and social media presence. Brigitta has some previous experience in communications and nonprofit work, so she thinks she brings that to her involvement with CSW. She is also keenly aware of equity and professional development issues faced by women at the University, especially faculty, so she brings that sensitivity to CSW as well.
