Area of Interests: 
transmedia studies / radio and sound culture / adaptation studies / Sinophone literature and culture / critical studies of feelings and affect

Major Highlights: 

Shu Chen works at the intersection of Chinese literary and media studies, writing about how sound media like radio, as an invisible force and a sonic environment, shaped the dynamics of other types of cultural production in modern China. She is interested in the affective form and technical format of sound-related transmedial adaptations, as a new way of understanding the sonic impulses behind key literary and filmic texts of the period.
