Assistant Professor of Chinese and Comparative East Asian Literature

I am a scholar of Comparative Literature and my research involves modern Chinese, Korean and Japanese literatures. My first book, Territorializing Manchuria: The Transnational Frontier and Literatures of East Asia, is scheduled to be released by Harvard Asia Center publications program in Spring, 2023. The book won the First Book Award from Columbia University's Weatherhead East Asian Institute in 2022, and will be included in the institute's East Asian Series. I am currently working on my second book project on Ethnic Korean literature in China. I also guest edited a special issue for Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature on Chinese literature across the borderlands with David Wang and Kyle Shernuk, published in 2021. My articles have appeared in Journal of World Literature, Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese LiteratureManchukuo Perspectives: Transnational Approaches to Literary Production, and Imagining Communities: Reading Contemporary China Against the Grain. My first book project has received generous support from a Mellon/ACLS Dissertation Completion Fellowship, a Japan Foundation Japanese Studies Fellowship, an SSRC InterAsia Junior Scholar Fellowship, and a Chiang Ching-kuo Scholar Grant. My second book project has received support from an SSRC Collaborative Research Workshop on Asian Migration.
