Education and Experience/教育・経験 Diana Khor received her M.A. and Ph.D. in Sociology from Stanford University, having completed a dissertation entitled “The Incorporation of Women into the Public Sphere: An Inquiry into the Cross-national Patterns, Antecedents and Consequences.” Before pursuing graduate work in the United States, she wrote an M.Phil. thesis on “Employed Women in Hong Kong: Their Class and Gender Imageries”, and completed her undergraduate education in sociology, both at the University of Hong Kong. Born and educated in British colonial Hong Kong, Diana Khor developed a sensitivity early on in her academic career to issues related to gender, class, race and colonialism.
Research Interests/研究関心 Gender has been Professor Khor’s principle research interest. She has worked on a diversity of projects related to gender, including feminist grassroots activism in Japan, the construction of knowledge in Women’s/Gender Studies, and gender research in sociology. In recent years, she has conducted research in the field of sexuality, focusing primarily on same-sex partnerships and family relationships. Working with overseas collaborators, she completed a project on marriage equality in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan. She is currently the principal investigator of a new project on same-sex partnership and kin relations in Hong Kong and Japan. Through her research and writing, Diana Khor is committed to engaging with, while at the same time decentering universalized knowledge of gender and sexuality produced in the context of “the West”, and developing theories and concepts based on Asian experiences.




香港大学で社会学の学士号 (B.Soc.Sc.)と修士号 (M.Phil.)、米国のスタンフォード大学で社会学の修士号(M.A.)と博士号(Ph.D.)を取得。イギリス植民地時代の香港で生まれ、教育を受けた経験から、大学時代よりジェンダー、階級、人種、植民地主義に関する問題に関心を持つ。研究では、「西洋」の文脈で生み出されたジェンダーとセクシュアリティに関する普遍化された知識を把握した上で、それらから脱却し、アジアの経験に基づく理論と概念の析出に取り組む。法政大学グローバル教養学部(GIS)学部長(2015年, 2016年, 2019年)を経て、2021年度より法政大学常務理事・副学長に就任し、グローバル・ダイバーシティ・男女共同参画に関する事柄を担当する。これまでの研究・教育経験および個人的な経験を活かし、本学を包摂的かつグローバルな大学に導く。
