My monograph Sensing the Sinophone: Urban Memoryscapes in Contemporary Fiction is forthcoming January 2022 as part of the Cambria Press Sinophone World Series.
In my current research, I look at how contemporary Sinophone works of fiction use botanical characters, plant imagery and green environments to create alternative realities, explore possible futures and deal with traumatic pasts; colouring their writings, so to speak, with the green ink of literary plants.
Other research interests include literary sensory studies, urban Sinophone fiction, spacetime narratology, language and translation, world literature and memory studies
