Curriculum Vitae (460.59 KB)

My research focuses on literary and visual practices, with emphasis on modern China and Taiwan—in architecture, advertisement, screen media, and stage arts. I inquire how texts and images form and manipulate our perception of space and history. I am the founding director of the UW Summer Program in Chinese Film History and Criticism at the Beijing Film Academy and have served as the president of the Association for Chinese and Comparative Literature.
