About Me

I am Associate Professor of Chinese literature at Lingnan university in Hong Kong.

My first book Writing Pirates: Vernacular Fiction and Oceans in Late Ming China was published by the University of Michigan Press in 2021. I am now working on two new projects: one that studies how Qing-dynasty Chinese literature portrays oceans and exotic islands in the Malay Archipelago and beyond, and one on “hairpins” in late imperial Chinese literature.

My academic research interests include but are not limited to: the sea and the literature, pirates, early globalism and China’s literature, gender studies, material culture and literature, performance studies, and translation studies.
