Dylan Suher examines how the influence of television, film, and digital media transformed the conception of literature as a medium in the PRC. He centers his research on China’s “long 1990s” and investigates how, during this period, the function of the author, the relationship between the author and their audience, and concepts of media determinism became the crux of debates over the future of Chinese literature and culture.

Research Interests: Modern Chinese Literature, Cinema, and Popular Media
