I am a doctoral student working on cityscape and memory in late 20th century Sinophone urban fiction. My focus is on the culturally hybrid global cities of Hong Kong, Shanghai and Taipei. I work through literary analysis based on phenomenology of place.
I have an MA in comparative literature, specializing in Chinese literature, from University of Copenhagen, but have also studied at Beijing University (北大). I have worked as an assistant lecturer at UCPH and worked at Beijing International Studies University (BISU).
I enjoy almost all kinds of fiction (especially experimental fiction and 1900 adventure novels), as well as literature on philosophy of language, zoology, gardening and quantum mechanics. Reading suggestions always welcome!
