My research focuses upon Chinese lyrical poetry, society, and history during the Six Dynasties and early Tang periods (roughly from the 4th through 7th centuries). A particular interest is to examine the cultural context in which new forms and themes of poetry develop. I edit the multidisciplinary refereed journal Early Medieval China.
