Teaching

  • AN-1203 Introduction to English Literature

Research Interests

My primary research interests are comparative literature and the campus novel, particularly in looking at the genre’s global potentials and moving beyond the Anglo-American tradition. I am also interested in higher education and academic mobility; representations of the intellectual in Asian literatures; Asian popular culture; and gender and feminism.

Current Research Projects

  • Monograph Project: The Campus Novel in Asia
  • Book Chapter Project: “Unreal Lives: The University in the Millennial Novel”
