Yingcai is a scholar both in Chinese and English language and literature. Prior to teaching at DePaul University, he was teaching in Fudan University, one of the few most prestigious universities in China. He then went as a visiting scholar to McMaster University and the University of Toronto in Canada, where he taught courses on Chinese language and literature while studying Canadian literature. Once Yingcai returned to Shanghai, China, he continued his English teaching in Fudan for more than a decade before migrating to the U.S. with his family to obtain his MA in English Literature at DePaul.
Though he loves the English Language and literature, Yingcai’s passion has always been Chinese literature with special emphasizes on calligraphy and poetry, both classic and contemporary, theory as well as practice. His expertise of the Chinese Literature has also prompted his interest in Chinese cinema and translations.
