Jasmine Yu-Hsing Chen specializes in 20th-21st century Chinese and Sinophone theatre, media, visual culture, and literature. Her research weaves together the subject matter and history of Taiwanese theater, dance, cinema, and visual culture, and makes significant comparative connections with Japan, China, Hong Kong, Southeast Asia, and the West. Taking an interdisciplinary approach, she is preparing her first book manuscript, which focuses on how cross-cultural performance reshapes the performer and the audience’s perception of artistry, nation, and gender in Martial-Law Taiwan. Her second project examines how theatrical works interact with multiple forms of new media. Currently, she serves as a guest editor of the International Journal of Taiwan Studies.
