Manage episode 333581929 series 3368682
Yiyi’s research engages in a critical dialogue between contemporary environmental writing and ecocriticism in China and the Asian North American context. Specifically, she introduces
recent scholarly developments in contemporary Chinese ecocriticism, including increasing interest in Chinese North American environmental literature, to Western academe. The overall objective is to promote knowledge mobility in general, and international ecocritical dialogue in particular, between East and West, with a focus on the intersection of the environment and race as represented in literary works.
