Christina Moon

Christina Moon is Assistant Professor in the School of Art and Design History and Theory and the Director of the MA in Fashion Studies at Parsons The New School for Design. She received her doctoral degree in Anthropology from Yale. Her research looks at the social ties and cultural encounters between fashion design worlds and manufacturing landscapes across Asia and the Americas, exploring the memory, migration, and labor of its cultural workers, and ways of knowing and representing in ethnographic practice.

Her most recent article, “Fashion City: Diasporic Connections and Garment Industrial Histories Between the US and Asia” explores fashion’s postcolonial legacies and diasporic connections (across New York, LA, Seoul, Hong Kong, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Shanghai) as they play a significant role in the development of industrial districts, special economic zones, and knowledge clusters across the Pacific.
