|Asst Prof Chu Kiu-wai||Kiu-wai’s major research explores how cinema, media and arts represent nature and the environment; and how they impact people’s perceptions and actions towards environmental issues in contemporary world. It also examines how culture shapes, and is shaped by, the contacts and interactions between human and the more-than-human world (including animals, plants, inanimate objects, and the environment) in the Anthropocene age.
His research project “Shanshui in the Anthropocene: Comparative Ecocriticism in Chinese Cinema and Visual Culture,” fills major voids in the field of ecocriticism by offering cross-cultural analysis of film and visual media texts in Chinese contexts, and explores the changing dynamics and relationships between human beings and the environment in China under its drastic transformations.
Kiu-wai is also actively promoting cross-regional research and educational initiatives and collaborations in Ecocriticism and Environmental Humanities, particularly in East and Southeast Asian regions. He welcomes global research collaborations with academics from all disciplines, and non-academics such as artists, curators, media workers and others on cultural and ecocritical projects.
