Sze Wei Ang served as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Comparative Literature where she taught classes focused on questions of race, religion, ethics, and the nation-state within the areas of Asian American literature and South East Asian Studies. She defended her dissertation at Cornell University in the summer of 2008 and has begun working on a book manuscript that traces how ethical claims converge or diverge within comparative multicultural contexts.
