Margaret Rhee is a poet, feminist new media artist, and scholar whose work exemplifies the magic that can happen when one brings art, activism, and academia together and views the world through an intersectional lens of social justice.

She received her PhD from the University of California, Berkeley in ethnic and new media studies, and was recently a postdoctoral fellow at UCLA’s Institute of American Cultures.

She’s the author of the new poetry book Radio Heart: or, How Robots Fall Out of Love, as well as the editor of several literary journals and poetry anthologies about queer and trans relationships, race, and innovative poetics.
