East Asian Studies
Colby College

I teach Chinese language and literature in the East Asian Studies Department. My research centers on traditional fiction and drama. I am particularly interested in how stories about historical and legendary figures evolve over time and between genres. I am pictured to the left in the Rare Book Room of the Sichuan Teacher's College Library, Nanchong, Sichuan. I am on leave this school year (2010-2011) and will not be on campus.
