I received my PhD in Fall 2018 from the Department of English of University of North Texas. I am currently teaching literature and writing at UNT. My research and teaching interests include postcolonial theory, Marxism, comparative literature, and nationalism with a special regional focus on transnational Asian and African cultures. My current book project in progress examines how the idea of “island” influences the formation of Taiwan in both symbolic and material ways.
