Dr. Washington's teaching and research interests are in critical media and cultural studies, rhetoric, and both Asian American and African American studies. Her work revolves around representations of race, mixed-race, gender, and sexuality within popular culture. Most recently her research has focused on non-White racially mixed people (specifically Blasians — Black + Asian).
