AU Expert

Area of Expertise:

Chinese language, literature and culture of late Imperial China

Additional Information:

Raphael Zhang's primary research field is literature and culture of late imperial China, in particular literati and family literature/culture of the late Ming and the Ming-Qing transition periods, roughly the 17th century. By focusing on the more "marginalized" individuals and groups of the social elite and their ways of self-(re)presentation and identity (re)construction, Zhang's research aims to illuminate the intricate relationships between the political and the cultural fields in pre-modern China. His research interests also include Chinese cinema and popular culture as well as translation and adaptation studies. He has published articles and book chapters on Chinese literati culture/literature, contemporary Chinese cinema and its reception.
