Rey Chow is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of the Humanities at Brown University, where she teaches in the Departments of Comparative Literature and Modern Culture and Media. She is the author of seven books, including The Protestant Ethnic and the Spirit of Capitalism (Columbia UP, 2002), The Age of the World Target: Self-Referentiality in War, Theory, and Comparative Work (Duke UP, 2006), and Sentimental Fabulations, Contemporary Chinese Films: Attachment in the Age of Global Visibility, (Columbia UP, 2007), and over seventy articles. Her work has been widely translated and anthologized.
I'm looking forward to seeing what she's currently working on.
