Michel Hockx is a professor of Chinese Literature in the Department of East Asian Languages and Cultures and the Director of the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies at the University of Notre Dame. He has published widely, both in English and in Chinese, on topics related to modern Chinese poetry and literary culture, especially early 20th-century Chinese magazine culture and contemporary Internet culture. His ongoing research focuses on the effects of moral censorship on the preservation and digitization of modern Chinese cultural products, especially those linked to marginalized groups or stigmatized practices. He is the editor, together with Joan Judge and Barbara Mittler, of Women and the Periodical Press in China's Long Twentieth Century, published from Cambridge University Press in 2018. Hockx studied Chinese language and literature at Leiden University in The Netherlands, where he earned his Ph.D., and at Liaoning and Peking universities in China. Prior to joining Notre Dame in 2016, he taught for twenty years at SOAS, University of London.
