My research engages with psychogeography in post-millennial Chinese cinematic cities. It aims to illuminate the sensory side of the city and the interdependent psychogeographic relationship between urban place and their inhabitants. I will target cites that haven’t been extensively discussed by western scholars such as Shenzhen, Wuhan, Chongqing, and Hangzhou. I did my MA for Research at The University of Warwick, and my BA at Huazhong University of Science and Technology, National Taiwan University, and UC Berkeley.
