Đồng Hà Nhuận (Ha Nhuan Dong)

Đồng Hà Nhuận (Ha Nhuan Dong) is a cultural critic and aspiring interdisciplinary researcher whose main concerns seep through science-humanities affinities, critical theories, contemporary arts, cultural phenomena, and environmental issues. His research concerns the deep sea and its scientific, political, philosophical, and poetic registers. A current subtopic of interest is the emergence of hadal science as a global knowledge infrastructure on which he presented a working paper at the 4S (Society for Social Studies of Science) 2023 Meeting. His previous research tracked the spontaneous developments of contemporary art in Vietnam and its diasporas as well as the academic discourse on the subject. His writing in English and Vietnamese has appeared in Femme Art Review, ArtsEquator, Art Republik Vietnam, Saigoneer, Hanoi Grapevine, Matca, Báo Phụ Nữ TP.HCM, and elsewhere. He was a writer-in-residence at the 2021 ArtsEquator x Goethe-Institut Critical Writing Micro-Residency.

The Feminist Media Studio is located on the unceded lands of the Kanien’kehá:ka Nation. We seek to stand in solidarity with Indigenous demands for land restitution and reparations.

Our work—committed to intersectional and anti-colonial feminist praxis—actively engages and names the predicament of doing feminism on stolen land. We acknowledge that territorial acknowledgement is insufficient to stand in solidarity with Indigenous communities.
Our anti-colonial and decolonial efforts articulated in our Lab Values center resisting extraction in all its facets, de-centering feminist canons, valuing methodologies that oppose white supremacy, and building good relations with human and more-than-humans.
