I received my Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, specializing in nineteenth-century American literary and cultural history. My research interests include nineteenth-century popular print culture, the history of the book, cultures of affect, and education. In 2011, Ohio State University Press published my first book, Reading and Disorder in Antebellum America. My work also appears in academic journals such as Library Quarterly, American Literature, and American Literary History. I have received financial support from various funding bodies, including Taiwan’s National Science Council, the J. William Fulbright and Andrew W. Mellon Foundations, and libraries such as the Library Company of Philadelphia, Huntington Library, and American Antiquarian Society. From 2002-2004, I was the Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow at the McNeil Center for Early American Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. In 2012, I received the National Central University Outstanding Teaching Award (教學傑出獎). In February 2019, I was appointed Emeritus Professor (中央大學榮譽教授).
