Biography:

Ying Bao specializes in Chinese cinema, modern literature, and popular culture from the early twentieth century to the present. She received her Ph.D. degree from the Department of East Asian Languages and Literatures at the Ohio State University in 2008. Her dissertation, entitled In Search of Laughter in Maoist China: Chinese Comedy Film 1949-1966, is a revisionist history of Chinese comedy films in the early years of the People's Republic of China. In addition to genre film, she is also interested in the relationships between arts and politics, cinema and urban culture, memory and nostalgia in modern Chinese literature and cinema, contemporary documentary film, and has an ongoing research project on contemporary urban folksong (chengshi minyao). Prior to coming to UNLV, she taught Chinese language, literature, and film courses at Denison University, Ohio State University, and Jiangnan University (Wuxi, China). Her recent publications have appeared or will appear soon in Comparative Literature: East & West, Encyclopedia of Contemporary Chinese Culture, and Modern Chinese Literature and Culture.
