I am interested in modern Chinese literature, sound studies, and media studies. East Asian studies provides a highly interdisciplinary and intellectually diverse platform for me to fully develop my interests. For my dissertation, I wish to explore the question of listening in twentieth century China, focusing on how ideas, technologies, and practices of listening change within different media, and how listening works as a way of subjectivity formation in socialist and postsocialist China.
