Old Science Hall, Room 341

Man-fung Yip received his Ph.D from the University of Chicago in 2011. His research and teaching interests focus on Chinese-language and East Asian film studies, theories of national and transnational cinema, as well as the intersection of cinema, mass culture, and modernity. He is currently working on a book manuscript that explores the juncture between the martial arts film genre and the colonial-capitalist modernity of Hong Kong from the mid-1960s to the end of the 1970s (and beyond). In addition, he is also developing a project on postwar Hong Kong Mandarin cinema, with a particular focus on the so-called “left-wing” films and on the continuities and changes, both aesthetic and ideological, between these films and their prewar Shanghai counterparts
