Assistant Professor of Chinese Literature and Culture

I am a scholar of Comparative Literature and my research involves modern Chinese, Korean and Japanese literatures. I am currently working on my first book manuscript, Borderland Matters: Manchuria and the Making and Unmaking of National Literatures in East Asia (1920-1950) and my second book project on Ethnic Korean literature in China. I am also guest editing a special issue for Prism: Theory and Modern Chinese Literature on Chinese literature across the borderlands with David Wang and Kyle Shernuk. My articles appear and will appear 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 Japan Foundation Japanese Studies Fellowship, an SSRC InterAsia Junior Scholar Fellowship, and a Chiang Ching-kuo Scholar Grant.
