Professor Carole HOYAN is Professor at the Department of Chinese Language and Literature, Faculty of Arts, The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She received her B.A. (Hons. First Class) and M.Phil. in Chinese Language and Literature from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. She subsequently pursued her Ph.D. studies in Canada with the support of the Commonwealth Fellowship and the Sir Edward Youde Memorial Fellowship for Overseas Studies (honorary). She received her PhD degree in Asian Studies from the University of British Columbia and started teaching at the Department of Chinese Language and Literature at the Chinese University of Hong Kong since 1996. She was appointed Interim Director of Centre for China Studies in August 2023. She is also serving as Director of the Yale-China Chinese Language Learning Centre (CLC) currently. Before that, she was Acting Chairman and Vice Chairperson (Student Affairs) of the Department of Chinese Language and Literature. She was also Acting Head of the Chinese Division of the Graduate School and Director of MA Program in the Division.


“I am honored to have the chance to serve as interim Director of the Centre for China Studies. As a scholar of Asian Studies specializing in modern Chinese literature, my academic studies and practices are founded on an ongoing inquiry into the place of literature in an ever-changing world, especially how it interacts with other disciplines. For this reason, my research—and, by extension, my teaching and services—are guided by a trans-regional perspective and an interdisciplinary vision.


I strongly believe that the research, teaching and promotion of literature not only advance our knowledge of literary works and tradition, but also help us to improve our understanding of—and hence our interactions with others in—an increasingly diverse world, thereby enabling us to become more compassionate and humanistic members of society.” ——Carole HOYAN
