Chinese Literature and Culture, Women and Gender, Translation and Comparative Literature
Yun Zhu received her BA and MA in English from Shanghai International Studies University and her PhD in Comparative Literature from University of South Carolina. Her research interests focus on Chinese literature and culture from the late Qing to the contemporary period and women’s literature and film. Her first book, Imagining Sisterhood in Modern Chinese Texts, 1890-1937 (Lexington Books, 2017), investigates sisterhood as a converging thread that weaves female subjectivities and intersubjectivities into a larger narrative of Chinese modernity.
