Prof. Haun Saussy
University of Chicago (USA)



Professor Saussy joined the University of Chicago faculty in 2011. He received his B.A. (Greek and Comparative Literature) from Duke University and his M.Phil and Ph.D from Yale (Comparative Literature); between undergraduate and graduate schools, he studied linguistics and Chinese in Paris. He has previously taught at UCLA, Stanford, Yale, the City University of Hong Kong, the Université de Paris-III, and the University of Otago (New Zealand). He was president (2009-2011) of the American Comparative Literature Association. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and a member of the Faculty Advisory Boards for two new initiatives at the University of Chicago: the Neubauer Family Collegium for Culture and Society and the Stevanovich Institute on the Formation of Knowledge, as well as of the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights. An avid cyclist, he discovered that long road trips favor the memorization of verb paradigms and lyric poetry, which happen to be two of his main intellectual interests. His book-length influential publications include The Problem of a Chinese Aesthetic (Stanford, 1993); Great Walls of Discourse and Other Adventures in Cultural China (Harvard University Asia Center, 2001); Chinese Women Poets, An Anthology of Poetry and Criticism from Ancient Times to 1911 (with Kang-i Sun Chang;  Stanford, 1999); Comparative Literature in an Era of Globalization (Johns Hopkins University Press, 2004); The Ethnography of Rhythm: Orality and Its Technologies (New York: Fordham University Press, 2016; awarded the Scaglione Prize by the MLA); Translation as Citation: Zhuangzi Inside Out (Oxford University Press, 2017), to name but a few.
