Chung-Wei Yang is a Ph.D. student in pre-modern Chinese literature, with emphasis in fiction and drama in the late imperial period. Chung-Wei received her B.A. in both Chinese and English literature, and M.A. in Chinese Literature from National Taiwan University. Her M.A. thesis deals with the relationship between material/visual culture and historical consciousness in early Qing drama. Building on her past research in the area, Chung-Wei’s future project will highlight the interplay among different genres, from Ming-Qing fiction and drama to the films of the Republican period.
