Base in Metro Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Huai Bao, a.k.a. H. B. Dhawa (the pen name used for his first two best-selling books), received his Ph.D. at Simon Fraser University in Canada in May 2015. His substantial research is focused on gender and sexuality s intersected with literature and culture in China, East Asia, and other non-Western traditions. Huai had worked in the film and TV industry internationally for years before settling into academia, and had gained extensive experience, skills and knowledge for his subsequent scholarly work.
Huai Bao’s monograph, Cross-Gender China: Across Yin Yang, Across Cultures, and Beyond Jingju, was published by Rutledge (New York, London and Oxfordshire) in August 2017 , and is currently being distributed all over the world.Since 2010, he has had two books, 16 refereed journal articles and book chapters published or accepted in the USA, Canada, Europe and Asia, and has presented original research at top-class international conferences in North America, Europe and Asia. In July 2016, he presented a paper at at Oxford University, which will be included in a book published by Brill Publishers in the Netherlands.
In addition to research, Huai began his teaching career as an instructor of the Chinese language and culture. In 2013, he was hired to teach at 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 the Chinese government, 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 helped with the registration and construction of the electronic journal, Women Suffrage and Beyond, and has maintained the website and its database, and made regular contacts with our writers since 2013.
With a strong literature, theatre, and filmmaking background, Huai Bao’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 people, he believes that qualitative interviews are as important as large-scale surveys to help a researcher find out the “truth” as well as “facts.”
