Professional Bio

Yi-Ting Chang moved to the United States in 2015 to pursue a doctoral degree in English. She works on twentieth-century and contemporary American literature, with a special focus on ecocriticism. Her ecocritical interests include environmental justice, environmental identity as well as how Taoism and Zen Buddhism have contributed to environmental ethics. Aside from research, she is fond of creative pedagogy. She created the blog Writing: A Meeting of Minds ( to encourage her students to write outside of the classroom. She also enjoys working with the local community and makes her students apply what they have learned to life outside the classroom and beyond school.
