Tzu-hui Celina Hung is Assistant Professor of Literature at NYU Shanghai. Prior to joining us, she was a visiting assistant professor and Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Humanities at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she taught for the Department of Asian Languages and Cultures and the Department of Comparative Literature. Hung’s research and teaching center on issues such as Sinophone literature and culture in the context of globalization, Chinese migration and its diasporic or settler-colonial networks, Anglophone literature, postcolonial Southeast Asian studies, and the discourses of creolization and multiculturalism in contemporary Sinophone societies. She is completing a book project that examines the multilingual articulations of creolization by writers, educators, and filmmakers hailing from Southeast Asia with various Peranakan Chinese backgrounds at the turn of the twentieth century and here onward, amid a changing nexus of competing political forces and cultural resources at home and abroad.
