Personal profile

Research interests

I research cultural and literary histories in China and Taiwan under Japanese rule. Before coming to Manchester, I received my MPhil and PhD in Chinese Studies from the University of Oxford. My PhD thesis looked at literary translation’s role in meditating gendered histories of Japanese colonialism in Taiwan. 

Alongside preparing my thesis for publication, currently I am beginning work on a second project – ‘Ties that Bind: Selling Cloth, Sewing Community in Occupied China’ – which examines the cultural politics of textile production in Shanghai and Manchuria from 1930 to 1945.
