Research Abstract
Professor Mimura's research examines the complex, dynamic and uneven relations between media, social movements and popular culture. His book, Ghostlife of Third Cinema (University of Minnesota Press, 2009), brings together two concerns: 1) the history of Asian American media arts since the late 1960s in the late Cold War and post-Cold War contexts of nationalism and globalization; and 2) the recent history of film and cultural theory at the interface of Marxism and poststructuralism. Professor Mimura's current research examines post-civil rights formations of race and sexuality, and their articulations in popular culture, consumer capitalism and social space.
