Research areas

Pamela Hunt's research interests cover contemporary (post-reform) Chinese and Sinophone literature and film with a particular interest in masculinity and mobility.

Her first book, Rebel Men: Masculinity and Attitude in Postsocialist Chinese Literature (Hong Kong University Press, 2022) considers the representation of masculinity in post-1989 Chinese fiction and its connection to expressions of resistance and transgression. 

Her latest research project considers the trope of mobility in contemporary Chinese culture. She explores how new and renewed opportunities to move are reflected in, but have also fundamentally reshaped, the cultural field in China since Opening up and Reform.
