Ying-Hsiu Chou has worked as a Fulbright Scholar from Taiwan since 2016. Her research interests focus on interdisciplinary approaches to Chinese fiction, film, and popular culture, with emphasis on genre, gender, cross-media adaptation, and transcultural encounter. Chou’s thesis, “The Innovative Representation of Romantic Love in ‘The Oil-peddler Wins the Queen of Flowers,’” traces the developments in Feng Menglong’s redefinition of qing through an examination of his understanding of the romantic tale. In Feng’s new romantic story in the vernacular, romantic love comes to be portrayed through the characterizations of affection and sympathy. This portrayal differs from that in earlier tradition and marks a major shift in the development of the Chinese romance genre. She has presented papers at the Annual Meeting of the Western Branch American Oriental Society, the North American Conference on Chinese Linguistics, and the Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association Convention.
