The graduate program offered Dr. Jou a wide variety of literary traditions, with emphasis on historical coverage on issues of influence and on critical as well as theoretical approaches ranging from textual criticism to cultural studies. She submitted her substantial report and defended her research plans in a viva in order to upgrade from MPhil to PhD status. Her research reflects an exhilarating scope of methods, approaches, and questions. Dr. Jou’s study in critical theory, literary interpretation, and comparative philology provided her the basis for work on translation, the history of ideas, gender, drama, oral poetics, multilingualism, post-colonialism, the environmental and medical humanities, globalization and world literature.
