Ruoyi Bian (2020)

Ruoyi Bian

Ruoyi studied English Literature at Doshisha University in Kyoto, Japan. My B.A. Thesis was about the British Aesthetic Movement in 19th Century and the Gilbert and Sullivan opera, Patience.  Ruoyi is very interested in Aestheticism in both Europe and Asia. Ruoyi would like to focus on the 20th century Asian literature in my future study, including the influences it received from western countries. During free time, Ruoyi enjoys playing the piano, watching movies and exercising.

CAH thesis: "The Female Figures in Aesthetic Literature in Early Twentieth-Century China and Japan—Yu Dafu and Tanizaki Junichiro as Examples"
