Personal profile


Fan Ni (倪帆) is a PhD candidate at the University of Western Australia. Her doctoral project investigates the rise of shengtai wenxue (ecological literature) in post-millennium China. She is particularly interested in the intersection of nostalgia (xiangchou, 鄉愁) and solastalgia as both a poetical and cultural-political term, both "a structure of feeling" and "a structure of rhetoric", which reveal various aspects of the environmental issues that would be otherwise concealed in these literary texts. Her research interests include sinophone literature, ecocritical studies, comparative literature, Chinese “new wave” science fiction, as well as the intersection between ecocriticism, posthumanism and affect theories.
