I am currently working on 4 major projects:
1. A book-length project entitled Prophylactic Fictions: Immunity and Biosecurity, which traces the British literary and cultural history of immunity in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in relation to conceptions of national security and the rise of the security state. Drawing on approaches from the history of medicine, disability studies, and literary studies, my project considers how transformations in and representations of preventative medicine underpin contemporary debates about biosecurity and vaccination.
2. A tentative book project that explores historical models and theories of chronic pain and disability in the long eighteenth century.
3. A chapbook of poems called Listening to Incense, which explores the relationship between depression and masculinity within the context of my family’s immigrant Chinese experience.
4. An untitled series of charcoal portraits focused on motion and shadow tentatively titled Gestures.
