Dr. Huai Bao has also used the pen name, H. B. Dhawa, for his publications. The name, Dhawa, meaning the moon in the Tibetan language, was given by a renowned Tibetan spiritual teacher with the same name. In Tibetan tradition, if a guru feels that you have great spiritual potential and that you have a connection with him predetermined from a past life, he will give you his name.
Huai Bao has always been an insatiable knowledge seeker. After he received his Ph.D. from Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada, he received the SSHRC postdoctoral fellowship and conducted postdoctoral work at University of Toronto.
Since May 2013, Huai Bao has been working with Professor Emerita Veronica Strong-Boag, F.R.S.C., a distinguished historian from the University of British Columbia on the UBC-based e-journal, Women Suffrage and Beyond.
Huai Bao trained in the Peking Opera in his early years, and also learned painting, origami, photography, and martial arts with renowned artists in China and Canada. After graduating from Vancouver Film School, he engaged in several critically acclaimed short and full-length feature films. After attending a few international film festivals, inspired by several film critics and faculty members, he decided to settle into academia.
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.”
Aside working for other filmmakers’ independent productions, Huai Bao has written, produced, and directed one full-length feature film based on a true story that took place from China to Canada, Fearless from Red China. He also has published three books and numerous journal articles in North America, Europe, and China, and has taught at the University of British Columbia, Simon Fraser University, and University of Waterloo.
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.
