Biography

Paul Manfredi’s research concerns modern and contemporary Chinese poetry and art, modernism, and urban culture in China. His articles have appeared in Modern Chinese Literature and Culture, Journal of Modern Literature in Chinese, and Yishu: Journal of Contemporary Chinese Art, while his translations have appeared in various collections of modern and contemporary Chinese poetry. He now lives with his family in Bellevue, WA, a small city that is slowly but surely surpassing its status as mere “Seattle suburb.”
