The GEM Lab would like to congratulate Weixian Pan on her recent position at NYU Shanghai in the faculty of Interactive Media Arts.
Prior to joining NYU Shanghai, she taught at the Mel Hoppenheim School of Cinema and was part of the GEM Lab as the Lead Coordinator and a researcher.
She collaborates in several initiatives including Digital Ethnography Workshops and Life-Streaming Working Group. Her research focuses on the intersection between global media and environments, particularly the ways in which environments are mediated into political territories and engineered as part of the new technologies of social governance. Her current book project, China Southern: Digital Environments as Geopolitical Contact Zones, examines how digital media shapes the materiality and political imaginary of land, sea, and air.
