Creating Across Cultures: Women in the Arts from China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan
I contributed three chapters to this incredible book, which was launched in June 2017 in the US. Christopher Merrill has called the book “an indispensable resource for anyone seeking to understand the dynamism underpinning what some are calling the Chinese Century.” Evan Osnos calls it "a magnificent book" and the poet Sarah Howe calls it "a triumph of feminist documentary."

Song Dong: 36 Calendars
This project was just amazing. I worked closely with the team at Asia Art Archive, to help copy edit the English translation of Song Dong's vast 36 Calendars project. Song Dong is one of the most influential and astonishing Chinese contemporary artists, who has a strong spiritual aspect and a remarkable social conscience.
