Denise Cruz is a scholar of gender and sexuality in national and transnational cultures, with special interests in the Philippines and Asian American literature. Her publications cover a range of subjects, from the connections between the rise of English literature and the women’s suffrage movement in Manila; to the vibrant high fashion world of contemporary Filipino couture; to the artistic strategies modernist authors used to imagine a transpacific world during the early twentieth century. She is the recipient of the Lenfest Distinguished Faculty award, the University of Toronto Faculty of Arts and Sciences Teaching Award, and most recently, an Innovative Course Design Provost’s Teaching and Learning Grant for the project: “Reimagining the Humanities Lecture in a Transnational, Pandemic World.” The latter supported the redesign of her large lecture course in Asian American literature (see the course trailer).
