Kate Chiwen  Liu

Kate Chiwen Liu got her PhD degree in English at State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1993. She has published articles on issues of re-constructions of history, trauma and/or urban immigrant identities in a number of Asian Canadian and Caribbean Canadian novels (by Michael Ondaatje, Joy Kogawa, Dionne Brand, SKY Lee, Kerri Sakamoto, Dionne Brand, Neil Bissoondath and Austin Clarke). Her studies of Canadian and Taiwanese films focus on their treatments of postmodern cities in the era of globalization. She has discussed the Canadian and Taiwanese films set respectively in Toronto, Montreal and Taipei in terms of their treatments of urban flows, flâneurial look, chance encounter and mediated communication. She is currently writing two books, respectively on postcolonial Canadian novels, and postmodern Canadian films. The book on Canadian films also makes comparisons between Canadian and Taiwanese films in order to bring her Canadian projects back home.
