Associate Professor of English Steven Yao spoke recently at Cambridge and Sussex Universities in England. At Cambridge, Yao presented a paper titled, "Ezra Pound's Cathay and the Languages of Anglo-American Modernism," as part of the international conference on Translations and Transformations: China, Modernity, and Cultural Transmission that was hosted there on May 1-3. While in the UK, Yao also gave an invited lecture at Sussex University in Brighton, where he spoke to the American Studies research seminar on "Asian American Verse and the Limits of Hybridity," a talk arising from his current book project of Chinese American poetry.
