Lu’s major research interests include modern Chinese literature (especially of the late Qing and early Republican period), visual culture, intellectual history and gender studies. Her dissertation explores the textual and visual adaptations of traditional Chinese autobiographical genres in the modern Chinese context, focusing on modern writers’ alternative visions of self that complicated the dominant discourse of subjectivity of the May Fourth period.
