Ph.D. Candidate in Chinese Literature
Dylan Suher

Dylan Suher's research focuses on pop culture ideology and intermediality in literature from the People's Republic of China in the early nineties; in other words, how the liberalization of the Chinese cultural industry and the emergence of a film and television-dominated popular culture in the late eighties and early nineties pushed writers to reevaluate their relationship with the reading public, the state, and society as a whole, and how their writing reflected this paradigmatic shift. He is also interested in the history of publishing in the People's Republic of China, late eighties Chinese television, the history of the Chinese television industry, and Chinese and Western media theory. Outside of academia, he serves as a contributing editor for Asymptote, a journal that focuses on literature in translation.
