Dr. YUE Isaac 余文章博士

余文章博士,2007年加入香港大學,主要教授翻譯、古典文學和中國神話等領域的課程。現任中文學院副教授並為《文學論衡》和《東方文化》的編委會成員。曾任英國倫敦大學訪問學人、台灣大學訪問學人、史丹福大學訪問學人,研究重心為翻譯研究、文化身份、東西文化交流(以十九世紀為主)、古典小說以及中華飲食文化與文學。

I joined the University of Hong Kong in 2007. As a student of literature, I am interested in the relationship between literature and cultural identity in both a Chinese and western context. My approach is interdisciplinary and broad-based, often incorporative of topics of literature, history and cultural studies. I publish in both Chinese and English, and am currently an editorial member of The Journal of Chinese Literary Studies (文學論衡) and Journal of Oriental Studies (東方文化). Besides my ongoing investigation on Chinese gastronomy and literary translation, I recently published Monstrosity and Chinese Cultural Identity: Xenophobia and the Reimagination of Foreignness in Vernacular Literature Since the Song Dynasty (Amherst, NY: Cambria, 2020).

I would be interested in supervising on most aspects of literary and cultural studies, with particular interest in translation studies, classical Chinese fiction, East-West cultural exchange since the nineteenth century, and theories of cultural identity. Students who are interested in using English as a medium to research on imperial Chinese literature are also welcome to contact me.
