The Chinese language program at Nazareth College is an immersive experience that provides students with concentrated training in Mandarin, the standard modern Chinese language.
In addition, students are exposed to the literature, history, culture, arts, and religions of China. The emphasis will be on preparing students for further study as translators and interpreters, and for corporate and government service, as well as preparing them for advanced study in the language and culture.
Education: A native speaker of Chinese, he received his Ph.D. in modern Chinese literature and culture from the University of British Columbia.
Teaching and Research Interests: Twentieth century Chinese literature and film, modern Chinese intellectual history, and contemporary Chinese social and intellectual issues. He has published extensively in both Chinese and English on issues in modern Chinese literature, culture, and history. He is currently working on a book manuscript on contemporary Chinese avant-garde fiction.
He worked as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Institute of Asian Research at UBC and as Visiting Assistant Professor at Lehigh University before joining Nazareth.
"Nazareth’s tour of China brings a large group of students to the world’s most dynamic economy, links the College and our students to China, and further creates a global consciousness."
