Walter Hsu


After obtaining his Ph.D. degree in Theatre Arts from Cornell University, Dr. Hsu worked as a post-doctoral researcher/instructor at Shanghai Theatre Academy and continued his research from modern to contemporary Chinese theatres. Dr. Hsu is now an assistant professor at the Theatre Arts Department at National Sun Yat-Sen University in Kaohsiung, Taiwan. His research projects focus on modern and contemporary theatre or performances in its broadest sense, in both China and Taiwan. He is especially interested in how inquiries into meanings of cultural objects can intersect with intellectual debates on certain critical concepts, such as modernity, sexuality, identity, body and community.
