I am a brand-new Assistant Professor in Asian Studies at Cornell University. I have a Ph. D. from Princeton University, where I wrote a dissertation on contemporary Chinese prose poetry. I'm also a graduate of the MFA program at Washington University in St. Louis, and served as their third-year poet in residence. I am the author of three chapbooks, which are linked below. In addition to original poetry, I write essays and book reviews, and am a translator of contemporary Chinese poetry. I blog occasionally at the Boston Review and am on Twitter @nadmussen.
