Rosie Kar graduated in 2013, when she defended her dissertation entitled "What Can Brown Do for You? Citizenship and Desire: The South Asian Diasporic Body," with a doctoral emphasis in Feminist Studies. She now teaches in the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, at California State University, Long Beach, where her courses center on popular culture, women writers of color, and women's health and sexuality. Her research is on the intersections of literary studies, critical race theory, feminist theory, history, media, and popular culture, which has allowed her to develop interdisciplinary strengths in both the humanities and social sciences, including South Asian Studies, Asian American Studies, Subaltern studies, Diasporic Studies, New Sexuality Studies, Women's and Gender Studies, and post-colonial theory. She is a documentary filmmaker, and a core member of South Asians for Justice, Los Angeles. She has published in Jaggery, for the Asian American Women Artist's Association, and YoDesh.com.
