Setsuko Yokoyama

Setsuko Yokoyama (横山 説子, she/her/hers) is a queer Japanese diasporan, committed to redressing historical violence, healing trauma, and envisioning a more just society through literary art. Currently working as an ACLS Emerging Voices Postdoctoral Fellow at Washington University in St. Louis, her research investigates the history of “Visible Speech”—from phonetics, physiological alphabet, to the sound spectrograph—and how it intersects with linguistic imperialism, scientific racism, and technosolutionism.
