Her research areas include nationalism, race, diaspora, Sinophone literature, transnational labor, history of science, and different approaches to large-scale literary and cultural studies. Author of Failure, Nationalism, and Literature: The Making of Modern Chinese Identity, 1895-1937 and Sound and Script in Chinese Diaspora, Professor Tsu is also co-editor (with David Der-wei Wang, Harvard) of Global Chinese Literature: Critical Essays and (with Benjamin A.
