Kiang's articles on colonial friendships in Edwardian and 20th-century English fiction have appeared in ARIEL: A Review of International English Literature and Creatural Fictions: Animal-Human Relations in Twentieth- and Twenty-First-Century Literature (ed. David Herman) in 2016. His article on postcolonial literature (Shih-Shu Ching’s novel City of the Queen: A Novel of Colonial Hong Kong) was published in the 2018 special issue of The Global South.

Kiang's essay on H. G. Wells’s The Island of Doctor Moreau appeared in the edited collection Victorian Environmental Nightmares (eds. Mazzeno and Morrison, 2019). He is guest editor of the Fall 2021 special issue of The Global South Journal ("Contextualizing the 21st-Century Anglophone Novel").
