Andrew received his PhD in East Asian Languages and Cultures at Indiana University in the summer of 2020. Before joining Macalester, he taught courses in public speaking, East Asian history, East Asian popular culture, and various levels of Chinese language.
His research interests include modern and contemporary Chinese literature, Chinese cinema, popular culture in modern China, and literary translation. His current project documents how modern Chinese martyr discourses served—and continue to serve—as vital meaning-making sites wherein notions of selfhood, identity, and community are imagined and contested. His most recent article, “Imagining the New Socialist Child: The Cultural Afterlife of the Child Martyr Wang Erxiao,” focuses on the motif of child martyrdom and its place within Chinese socialist culture. He is also currently working on translating a collection of short stories written by Shen Congwen in the early 1930s.
