Research Interests: 

Representation of history in Chinese cinema, the relation between opera and cinema, Chinese independent documentary films. I am particular interested in how cinema changes our perception of and relation to history as compared to experiencing the past through words. Along this line, I also have related interest in the circulation of "history as common sense” through opera performance, novels, and other forms of popular culture.
