Tze-lan Sang specializes in modern Chinese literature and culture. She has written on a wide range of topics, including gender and sexuality in twentieth-century Chinese literature and film, Chinese performance studies, and Taiwanese literature and social movements. She is currently working on two projects, one focusing on the popular literature and urban culture of Republican China, the other on Taiwanese documentary films. She is particularly interested in the issues of historical representation, environmental protest, and gender and sexual politics as articulated by documentarists, and how these themes in documentaries relate to contemporary developments in fiction films, literature, and cultural debates.  
Prof. Sang's research has received support from the American Council of Learned Societies, the Chiang Ching-kuo Foundation, and the Fulbright Foundation.
