Michelle Chiang is Assistant Professor with the Division of English, School of Humanities. She received her PhD from the University of Leeds, UK, and completed her postdoctoral research at the Department of English, University of Pennsylvania. She has published articles and book chapters on the intersection between literature, and the philosophy of time and mind. She is the author of Beckett’s Intuitive Spectator: Me to Play (Basingstoke: Palgrave, 2018) which explores how Beckett’s dramatic oeuvre appeal more to the audience’s intuition, than the intellect. Extending her interest in literary representations of lived experiences, her latest book project looks at how absurdist literature informs our understanding of illness, dying and care.
