    Profile

    Jack Jin Gary Lee is Assistant Professor of Sociology at The New School for Social Research.

    His scholarship explores how race and law shape the social logics and processes of governance in modern empires and (post)colonial states. He is working on a book, Inventing Direct Rule, on the significance of law and race in the making of “direct rule” in the modern British Empire. Focusing on the reconstitution of Jamaica and the Straits Settlements (Singapore, Penang and Malacca) as Crown Colonies in the nineteenth century, this project examines the structures, practices, and legacies of “direct rule” in relation to colonies marked as “plural societies.” His dissertation on this topic won the University of California, San Diego’s 2018 Chancellor’s Dissertation Medal (Social Sciences).
