Christina Chia, Associate Director, Strategy & Operation of John Hope Franklin Humanities Institute and Computational Media, Arts & Cultures

Christina Chia

Christina Chia is Associate Director at the Franklin Humanities Institute (FHI). She received her PhD in English from Duke in 2004, and worked at the Center for Multicultural Affairs prior to joining the FHI in 2006. At the FHI she has administered a range of research and education programs, including the Dissertation Working Group, the Graduate Digital Scholarship Initiative, the Humanities Laboratories, the FHI-North Carolina Central University Digital Humanities Fellowships, and Story+.

Outside of her work as an academic administrator, she maintains a strong research interest in the social worlds human beings share with non-humans. Trained in American Studies and Ethnic Studies, she is particularly interested in how multispecies relations shape and are shaped by inequalities among human beings. In 2013 she was part of an interdisciplinary group that curated Recording the Anthropocene, a public exhibit exploring scientific, cultural, and artistic visions of the planetary impact of the human species. She has taught courses in the English Department, Program in Women's Studies, and Center for Documentary Studies.

A member of the Associate Directors and Administrators Network of the Consortium of Humanities Centers and Institutes (CHCI), she participates regularly in panels and workshops on non-faculty academic careers.
