Associate Professor of American Literature and History at Duke Kunshan University
My research and teaching are at the heart of transnational American Studies and literary history. My major intellectual theme revolves around locating works of American literature in twentieth-century China and in translation. I am the author of Mark Twain in China (Stanford UP, 2015), and have published in PMLA (forthcoming, 2023) and MELUS, among other places. I am currently Co-Chair of the International Committee at the American Studies Association, and Co-Director of Freedom Lab at DKU. I am on the Editorial Board of Global Nineteenth Century Studies, and am a Consulting Managing Editor of the Journal of Transnational American Studies.
