~1993 Research on American Rear-guard Poets
1994~2003 Research on John Ashbery and American Advance-guard Poets
2003~2012 Research on Relationships between Modern American Poetry and Music
2013~ Research on Literary and Cultural Aspects of American Poets during the Early
Cold War EraAs regards my research project, I’d like to propose a set of original insights into the cultural as well as literary situations during the transitional period immediately after the World War II by focusing on the poetry of such poets as John Ashbery, Elizabeth Bishop, and Frank O’Hara.
As regards my education, according to the principle that research and education are inseparable, it is ideal to reflect my research project in my courses in American literature.
To be more precise, for undergraduate courses, the progress of my lectures should be as clear as possible for students, so I provide original, customized sets of text that are more flexible than commercial ones. For the undergraduate and graduate seminars, emphasis is put both on reading through the discussion based on the students’ presentation and on teaching how to write seminar papers: how to research books or articles and how to organize one’s argument.(Subject of research)
