Biography

I graduated from Hong Kong Baptist University and majored in English Language and Literature. In the third year of my undergraduate study, I took the opportunity to concurrently study for the Diploma in Education alongside of my Bachelor’s degree at Hong Kong Baptist University. After completing my undergraduate degree, I decided to continue my postgraduate studies in the United Kingdom in order to broaden my horizons. I hold a Master’s degrees in Colonial and Post-Colonial Literature in English from the University of Warwick, a Master’s degrees in Comparative Literature from the University College London (UCL), as well as a Master’s degrees in Chinese Studies from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London.

Throughout all these degrees, I was required to compare literary works written in both Chinese and English Languages, which I found to be both interesting and challenging. My personal interest in conducting further research and literature has led me to now pursue a PhD in Chinese Cultural Studies at SOAS. Currently, I am now in my final stage of completing my thesis. The title of my PhD thesis is "From Feminism to Post-Feminism: The Development of Feminism in Hong Ying and Li Bihua's Work." The main aim of my project is to use a gender perspective to investigate two contemporary Chinese female writers--Hong Ying (Mainland China) and Li Bihua (Hong Kong) in order to show the influence of Western feminist ideologies on Chinese female writings and the changing status of women in China in the last two decades.
