Jia Hui Lee is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the John B. Hurford ’60 Center for the Arts and Humanities, and Visiting Assistant Professor of Anthropology at Haverford College. His book project is a historically informed ethnography of various human-rodent encounters in zoological research, animal training, and pest management schemes in Tanzania. His research explores how more-than-human encounters in East Africa are crucial sites for generating theories and critiques that offer what Sylvia Wynter calls counterhumanist visions of being “human” in the 21st-century. He has a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a MPhil from the University of Cambridge.
