Dean’s Faculty Fellow

It’s my great honor to be named one of seven inaugural Dean’s Faculty Fellows in the College of Arts and Science at Vanderbilt University for 2019-2021. The fellowship will provide funding and possible leave time that is instrumental for my research for the second book project. I thank my colleagues in the Asian Studies Program, especially Gerald Figal, for the unwavering support!

I’m glad to be recipient of a MacroGrant from The Vanderbilt Institute of Digital Learning (VIDL) to support my teaching/research project “Transcultural Learning through Virtual and Performance Spaces.” Through the project, my students and I will explore the circulation of a classical Chinese drama The Orphan of Zhao in different languages; we’ll also stage a performance of the drama at Vanderbilt U.

 

CCK Research Grant for Dead Body Project

I am honored to receive a Research Grant from the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation to support my book project Bodies That Still Matter: Forensics and Literature in Late Imperial China 屍體之重:法醫檢驗與明清文學 from 2018 to 2020.

The grant will allow me to make summer trips and conduct research in Asia and America. I look forward to working with literary and legal experts and exploring the intersections between crime literature and medical/legal practices in premodern China.
