I am presently interested in supervising PhD students rather than MPhil students, and Hong Kong PhD Fellowship Scheme (HKPFS) calibre students in particular. Applicants interested in working with me should present quality proposals via the HKBU Graduate School website on comparative literary ecocriticism and its emerging discourses (proposals bringing literary data analysis closer to home in the sinosphere, as well as in Asia more broadly, are particularly welcome), preferring the exploration of impacts reaching beyond the West and the English language. I am also accepting proposals on the problematics of “thing theory” in the age of speculative realism and correlationism, including post-Marxist approaches to being, objects, and identities discrepant of neoliberalism. I welcome post/formalist approaches to textuality while maintaining an iron-clad commitment to literary form. I am also an avid learner around science fictions as they are presently emerging in anglophone discourses throughout the globe.
