Chang Yufen is Visiting Fellow at NSC. She received her PhD in sociology from University of Michigan in May 2013. She spent a year as a postdoctoral fellow at Asia Research Institute before assuming the position of Visiting Fellow with the NSC at ISEAS. Her dissertation deals with how the mechanisms of emulation, differentiation, and hybridization shaped the formative process of the vernacular literature in colonial Vietnam. While at ISEAS, she will work on a project about pre-colonial Sino-Vietnamese translation. Her research interests include colonial Vietnamese nationalism, China-Southeast Asian cultural interconnections, translation, and Chinese-ness.
