Biography:

I specialize in late imperial Chinese fiction, drama, and maritime history. I am completing a book manuscript entitled Writing the Piracy War: Unofficial History, Vernacular Fiction, and the Problem of Imperial Identity in Late Ming China (1550-1644). This monograph examines how late Ming Chinese scholars and officials composed unofficial histories and vernacular fiction to narrate outlaws, pirates, immigrants, and foreign languages and peoples on the seas.

 

Selected Publications:

Writing the Piracy War: Unofficial History, Vernacular Fiction, and the Discourse of Imperial Identity in Late Ming China (1550-1644) (to be submitted to press for review in July)

“Java in Discord: Unofficial History, Vernacular Fiction, and the Discourse of Imperial Identity in Late Ming China,” positions: asia critique, forthcoming. 

“Magical Weapons and Adorable Exotica: Imperial Fetishism in a Sixteenth Century Chinese Novel,” Sino-Platonic Papers, 2009.
