Xiaoyu Xia

Xiaoyu Xia studies late Imperial, modern, and contemporary Chinese literatures and cultures. Before coming to Berkeley, Xiaoyu received her academic training from Fudan University (MA in 2016 and BA in 2013), and has since maintained a long interest in modern poetry. Her current research focuses on the introduction of neurology to and the rise of “nervous sensibility” in late Imperial and modern China, with which she also wants to consider the cross-boundary potentialities of literature and art. Her academic interests include material culture, medical humanity, and war experience in East Asian and global contexts.
