Wai Chee Dimock is William Lampson Professor of English and American Studies at Yale University. Originally from Hong Kong, she received her B.A. from Harvard University and Ph.D. from Yale University. She is active in the movement to internationalize the curriculum, using the "planet" as an analytic horizon to broaden the contours of American education.

Three concepts are important to Dimock: "deep time," a continuum of antecedents folded into expressive forms; "kinship," a reproductive network linking genres and media; and "close reading," understood as a counterpoint to globalization, allowing for movement across scales, micro as well as macro.

Dimock has lectured widely in the United States and around the world, from Peking University to Tel Aviv University, from the Central European University in Budapest to Uppsala University in Sweden. She has also collaborated with many colleagues: Michael Gilmore at Brandeis University, on Rethinking Class; Priscilla Wald at Duke University, on Literature and Science, a special issue of American Literature; Lawrence Buell at Harvard University, on Shades of the Planet; and Bruce Robbins at Columbia University, on a special issue of PMLA, Remapping Genre (Oct 2007). She is now at work on a book, Genres and Media: A Long Kinship. For an interesting exchange between Dimock ("Genre as World System") and Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak ("World Systems & the Creole"), see Narrative 14 (January 2006).

Outside the university, Dimock is also a consultant for "Invitation to World Literature," an educational series funded by the Annenberg Foundation and produced by WGBH. She is also a frequent contributor to a related Facebook forum, "Rethinking World Literature."
