Vivian Wenli Lin received her Ph.D. in Media Art at the City University of Hong Kong’s School of Creative Media. In 2017, her doctoral research was presented in the form of an exhibition titled, Visualizing the Voices of Migrant Women Workers at the University of Hong Kong with support from the Interdisciplinary Knowledge Exchange (KE) Project Fund.
Vivian received a Masters in Fine Arts from the Sandberg Instituut in The Netherlands where she co-founded Voices of Women Media in 2007, an organization that trains communities of migrant women in media literacy – including teenage girls, asylum seekers, victims of human trafficking, and women in the informal, emotional and domestic labor industries.
Vivian’s prior education includes a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Asian American Studies from the University of California at Berkeley. In addition, she received a Masters in Professional Studies at New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program where she co-founded the award-winning project, Fortunes for Cookies, a self-portrait video workshop for young women from the Chinatowns of New York City.
In 2017, Vivian moved to Japan, lecturing at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies before joining TWCU in 2019. She is excited to contribute to the higher education of women in Japan.
