Hang Tu (涂航) graduated from Sun Yat-Sen University in 2012 with a B.A. in English, and received his Master’s degree from University of Washington (Literature and Culture) in 2014. For his MA thesis, he focused on rethinking postsocialism as a critical framework through the lens of the 1980s Chinese intellectual and literary practices. He is now working on his dissertation project entitled “The Discourse of Enlightenment and Revolution in Post-Mao China,” in which he attempts to examine the interaction between literature and thought in the reform period. He is also doing a research on the legacies of Republican Christian Colleges in contemporary China and its impact on Chinese higher education reform. His other interests include: Sinophone literature, memory and media studies, Chinese political culture, Weimar thought, and Marxism.
