Based in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Huai Bao, a.k.a. H. B. Dhawa (a pen name used for his first two best-selling books), received his Ph.D. at Simon Fraser University in Canada.  His substantial research is focused on gender and sexuality as intersected with a multitude of disciplines in the humanities and social sciences relating to China, East Asia, and other non-Western traditions.  Huai had worked in the film and TV industry internationally for years before settling into academia, with extensive experience, skills, and knowledge gained for his subsequent scholarly work.

Huai’s monograph, Cross-Gender China: Across Yin Yang, Across Cultures, and Beyond Jingju, was published by Routledge (New York, London and Oxfordshire) in August 2017 , which is currently being distributed all over the world.  Since 2010, he has had three books, 18 refereed journal articles and book chapters published or accepted in the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia.  He has presented original research at top-class international conferences in North America, Europe, and Asia.

In addition to research, Huai began his teaching career as an instructor of the Chinese language and culture.  In 2013, he was hired by the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice at the University of British Columbia (UBC), teaching the core course—Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice in Literature.  Since then, Huai has taught widely on global genders and sexualities at three major universities.  As the holder of the top level standard Mandarin Chinese certificate from China, Huai has also taught the Chinese language and culture at all levels.

Huai has been of service to faculty, students, and a variety of communities since 2010.  He not only has created new courses, developed curriculum, and served as a course advisor and consultant, but also has constructively participated in collegial and departmental activities under the supervision of the heads of the college.  At UBC, he is instrumental in the registration, construction, and maintenance of the e-journal, Women Suffrage and Beyond. He has maintained the website and its database, and made regular contacts with our writers ever since 2013.

With a strong literature, theatre, and filmmaking background, Huai’s research requires extensive field work, and deals with literatures, histories, cultures, societies, religions, and human beings, using gender and sexuality as central terms for analysis and employing interdisciplinary and comparative approaches.  Having interviewed thousands of informants, he believes that qualitative interviews are as important as large-scale surveys to help a researcher find out “truth” as well as “facts.”

Praise 褒奖:

 

I was so lucky to have you teaching me three months after I landed in Canada with my parents. Everything was new to me. I didn’t realize until much later that you bought that binder for me out of your own pocket! Why? Why were you so kind to me? Seriously, I have not met any teacher in my life as kind as you are!

What I liked about Huai as my professor is, unlike most of the other professors who have taught me and who have basically moved from one school to another, Huai worked extensively in different lines of industry between his MA and his Ph.D. He often said society was the greatest university for him, and he learned through the real “field work” how to be a real social scientist. Highly recommended!

I will never forget the field trip you took us to the movie set. What a interesting day! Your innovative teaching methods could never make us tired! Oftentimes I found myself already counting the days to your next class!

I not only learned so much knowledge from Huai’s class; I also learned wisdom and compassion with which we go through the difficult times in our life.  Thank you for such a wonderful semester!

您是一个有天赋的老师。我的儿子只跟您能学到东西,跟其他那些教过他的老师就学不会。谢谢您自掏腰包给我儿子买的那本画册。

You are such a talented teacher. My son can only learn with you, but not the other teachers who have taught him. Thank you also for the beautiful picture book you have bought for him out of your own pocket.

Greetings, from India!

In 2015, I read your research paper entitled Repression, Silence and Cinematic Language: Eastern Sensibilities in Visualizing Brokeback Mountain. I found your ideas to be extremely enriching and well-written along with the film which I found to be very intelligent and hard-hitting. While developing my ideas, I made reference to your ideas a few times and acknowledged it in the text and bibliography.

我经常读达哇博士的文章,受益无穷。达哇博士对于国内外现象的评论、观察和比较总是富有哲理,而且很有趣,同时也令人深思,并给人以启迪。我觉得他对日常生活的点点滴滴总是有很到位的描述和深刻的分析。他写的每一篇文章都是知识与认知的凝结,并捕捉到万事万物的精髓。

I have been a regular reader of Dr. Huai Bao’s writings, and have benefited a lot. Dr. Bao’s critiques, observations and contrasts of Chinese and foreign phenomena are always philosophical and yet entertaining, as well as throughout-provoking and inspiring. I feel that he always has right-on-spot descriptions and insightful analysis of everyday matters. Every piece he writes is a condensation of knowledge and cognition and captures the essence of things.

几年前看过达哇博士写的两本书——《磁场》和《改命》,至今印象深刻,影响深远。和其他励志类书籍不同的是,达哇博士通过大量实例,结合亲身经历,对于心里、命理等看似神秘玄幻的领域一一抽丝剥茧、寻根问底,无形中给人以信念和信心,授人以渔。在当今快节奏的社会中,尤其值得挑灯夜读。每每回忆起来,忍不住再次翻开。

Several years ago, I read two books written by Dr. Huai Bao–Vibrations, and Change Destiny, and the impression is so deep up to this day. The books have had a profound and long-lasting impact on me. Unlike other inspirational books, Dr. Huai Bao has included many cases and his personal experiences to probe into the metaphysical realm of psychology, fate and destiny, and gives the reader so much faith and confidence as well as the trick to leading success. In the fast-paced contemporary society, his books are particularly worth reading carefully. Nowadays, whenever I recall the days I read the books, I can’t help rereading them.

我来自中国的一个小县城,最近搬到北京开始新的工作。我想告诉您的是我把您的书《改命》一路带到北京。这本书伴随我度过很多孤独的不眠夜。

I’m from a small town in China, and have recently relocated to Beijing for my new job. I wanted to write to let you know that I have carried your book, Change Destiny, with me all the way to Beijing. It has accompanied me through so many lonely and restless nights. Thank you!

Huai Bao’s Sexual Artifice in Gender Transgression is the first and only one internationally and, most likely, in China, too.

Thanks for your journal article, Sexual Misconduct: Rethinking Buddhism, which has been an important source of information for my own research project. I find you work extremely informative, insightful, and strange–Don’t get me wrong, strange is a compliment here!
