Cristina Hung comes from a Taiwanese family that immigrated to Chile. She received her B.A. in Spanish and French from New York University and her M.A. in Latin American Studies from Stanford University. She is currently writing her dissertation on empathy in contemporary Southern Cone literature and film, focusing on issues of violence and on the shift from empathy to the opposite spectrum of feelings, such as apathy, aversion, and hatred. Cristina’s other research interests include aesthetics, postcolonial studies, trauma studies, German cinema, and Chinese popular culture. She is also passionate about language teaching and hopes to develop a Spanish-Chinese translation and language learning digital platform in the future.
