Tzu-hui Celina Hung is an 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 interests include modern Chinese and Sinophone studies, Asian migration and diaspora, Anglophone literature, Southeast Asian studies, and the discourses of creolization versus multiculturalism. Her current book project studies the multilingual articulations of creolization by Peranakan writers and educators of various Chinese descents at the turn of the twentieth century and here onward, amid a changing nexus of political forces and cultural resources at home and abroad.
