Natalia Duong is a researcher, teacher, and multidisciplinary performance maker. Her current book, Chemical Diasporas: Performing Toxicity through Ecological Kinship investigates the afterlives of Agent Orange by bringing together feminist science studies approaches to toxicity and ethnic studies analyses of diaspora to trace legacies of militarized violence and the performativity of chemicals that are carried in bodies and that span the Pacific Ocean.
