Ying-Hsiu Chou has worked as a Fulbright Scholar from Taiwan since 2016. Her research interests focus on feminist and crossdisciplinary approaches to Chinese fiction, film, and popular culture, with emphasis on genre, gender, cross-media adaptation, and cultural encounter. Chou is now working on her dissertation, tentatively titled “The Deorbiting Planet”: The Romantic Male in Early 20th-Century Chinese Popular Culture,” which explores the romantic male in early-twentieth-century Chinese popular culture as a key to a new, more complex understanding of Chinese masculinities and popular culture. 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. Her art-based digital humanities project (videographic essay), Deconstructing the Construction: The Female Images in Chinese Detective Films, 2010-2020, received the Digital Humanities Summer Fellowship from the Simpson Center for the Humanities. She served as a committee member of the UW Taiwan Studies Program’s Land/scaping Taiwan: (Non-)Humans, Environment, and Moments of Encounter workshop, sponsored by the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation. She is currently a co-organizer of Rethinking East Asia Graduate Research Cluster, sponsored by the Simpson Center for the Humanities.
