Research interests

My research focuses on the multilingualism in Taiwan New Cinema (TNC), which examines the history and purpose of applying different languages and dialects in the films of TNC since 1982. This research intends to analyse the connection between multilingualism in the films of TNC and the social, political, and cultural transition of Taiwan in that era.
