Kewei Chen


I am a PhD candidate working on twentieth-century American literature at the School of English. Following the award of a BA in English Language and Literature from Fudan University (2014), I went on to gain an MA in English Literature from Peking University (2017). My current study is sponsored by the competitive grant of the China Scholarship Council. I am a peer reviewer for Exclamat!on: An Interdisciplinary Journal.

Research interests

My research interests centre around the intersection of space, time, things, and queer affects in mid-twentieth-century American literature. I also have ongoing interests in narrative theories, gender studies, and twentieth-century British and American literature more broadly.
