Junjie Luo has taught Chinese language classes from the first-year level through the fourth-year level, an introductory course to Chinese culture and society, and a literature course on Chinese identity. He recently took the adventure to teach “Cultural Analytics,” a data science course co-developed by Meg Blume-Kohout and himself.
Luo uses transcultural frameworks to study Chinese literature. He is the author of Traditional Chinese Fiction in the English-Speaking World: Transcultural and Translingual Encounters (Palgrave Macmillan, 2022). His essays have appeared in journals such as Comparative Literature Studies, Perspectives, ISLE, and Translation Quarterly, as well as in two edited volumes, Historic Engagements with Occidental Cultures, Religions, Power and Philosophy as World Literature. He served as a guest editor for two special issues, “Traveling Texts,” for Translation Quarterly. He is currently interested in connecting science and technology to literary studies.
