Amanda Fu


Amanda Ziyi Fu is a PhD candidate in Political Science at Northwestern. She works in political theory, especially feminist, critical, and anticolonial theories. Situated at the intersection of feminist theory and comparative political theory, her dissertation will survey the conception of political sexuality in the Western versus non-Western women's writings in the global twentieth century, as well as the contemporary aftermath of the sexual liberation movement. She is also working on a paper exploring the radical utopian potentials of silence as a site of protest and refusal. In her spare time, Amanda is an avid cook and occasional baker.
