My research and teaching are centered around film, audiovisual media as well as other modes of representational forms. Focusing on Chinese-language cinema and its attending clusters of modes of representation such as literature, music, theater, and new media, I approach audiovisual culture and the larger global cultural history through theory, historiography, and practice. Specific themes or genres I have written on and taught are narrative film, documentary, queer cinema, melodrama and I have been engaging with documentary and experimental filmmaking practice, multimedia installations, and photography curation. Part of my currently research brings to me consider questions of new media vis-à-vis new archives as mutually enabling while presenting entangled challenges in global media culture. I am also working on a large-scale research on the cultural representation of the year 1949 on both sides of the Taiwan Straits.
