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. Her thesis, “The Innovative Representation of Romantic Love in ‘The Oil-peddler Wins the Queen of Flowers,’” argues that Feng Menglong portrays romantic love as characterized by sympathy and affection in his new romantic story in the vernacular, and this portrayal marks a major shift in the development of the Chinese romance genre. Chou is now working on the romantic male in early twentieth-century Chinese popular culture as a key to a better understanding of modern Chinese masculinity. Her project, Deconstructing the Construction: The Female Images in Chinese Detective Films, 2010- 2020, received the 2020 Digital Humanities Summer Fellowship from the UW Simpson Center for the Humanities. 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. She is currently a co-organizer of the UW Taiwan Studies’ 2020 workshop, “Land/Scaping Taiwan: (Non-)Humans, Environment, and Moments of Encounter.”
