Associate Professor of Chinese. Ph.D. Columbia University; Department Chair, 2002-2004

Prof. Shu teaches in or oversees the elementary and intermediate modern Chinese courses, teaches advanced Chinese literature and developed the course in Chinese fiction-in-translation. His research focuses on modern Chinese fiction and modern Chinese literary criticism.


With a Master's degree in comparative literature and Ph.D. in Chinese literature, I have taught elementary, intermediate, and classical Chinese, as well as Chinese fiction reading, Chinese drama reading and modern Chinese fiction in translation. I am interested in offering Chinese courses in specific areas, such as business Chinese and newspaper Chinese.

My research interests include modern Chinese literature, mainly fiction and the literary relations between Chinese and English literature. I have published articles on contemporary Chinese fiction, China's image in Victorian literature, the Chinese influence on contemporary American poets Kenneth Rexroth and Gary Snyder. I have published a book Buglers on the Home Front: The Wartime Practice of the Qiyue (July) School. My book is a study of a group of dissident writers active in the 1930s and 1940s in the Chinese leftist literary circles.
