Sachi Sekimoto Minnesota State University, USA, Department of Communication Studies at Minnesota State University, USA

Sachi Sekimoto (PhD, University of New Mexico, 2011) is assistant professor of communication studies at Minnesota State University, Mankato. Her research focuses on theorizing and critiquing the materiality of culture, identity, ideology, and power through critical and phenomenological perspectives. Her scholarly work has appeared in Journal of International and Intercultural Communication and Communication Quarterly, in which she developed alternative ways of theorizing identity by focusing on the phenomenological significance of spatial, temporal, and embodied experiences in intercultural and transnational contexts. She is currently writing about and researching the cultural politics of the senses, examining the social and embodied construction of sensory experiences as a source of meaning, knowledge, and production/reproduction of power. She teaches undergraduate and graduate courses in intercultural communication, gender and communication, communication theory, critical pedagogy, and courses related to cultural studies and globalization.
