Dr. Yibing Huang is the Associate Professor of Chinese and Curator of the Chu-Griffis Asian Art Collection at Connecticut College. Huang’s research interests cover a broad range, including modern and contemporary Chinese literature, cinema and popular culture, comparative studies of modernism and postmodernism in China and in the West, and cultural translations between Chinese poetry and modern American poetry.
Huang studied at Beijing University from 1983 to 1993, receiving his B.A., M.A. and Ph.D. in Chinese Literature. During the same decade he also quickly established himself as a poet under the penname “Mai Mang,” and was closely associated with a new generation of young poets who were based in Beijing. He moved to the U.S. in 1993 and holds a second Ph.D. in Comparative Literature from the University of California, Los Angeles.
Huang has an impressive record of publications and conference presentations in both China and the U.S. In addition to his work in Chinese language and literature, Huang’s poetry has been published in China since the 1980’s, and is included in many prestigious anthologies.
