I specialize in Russian literature and culture of 1890s-1920s, the modernist period. My research revolves around the relationship between geopolitics and transnational aesthetics. Specifically, I work on the following topics: global modernism; Russo-Chinese cultural relations; late socialist culture; globalization and cosmopolitanism; geography and empire-building; World Literature; poetry and poetics; historical fiction; science fiction; the genre of memoirs; translation studies. I publish scholarship in English, Russian, and Chinese languages, and Chinese translations of Russian and English literary and academic works.
