Shun Kiang, Ph.D., is an assistant professor of English at UCO. Prior to joining UCO in 2018, Kiang was on the faculty at Case Western Reserve University, Stetson University and Bunker Hill Community College.

Kiang's research and teaching include Victorian and Edwardian literature, 20th- and 21st-century British literature, and contemporary Anglophone fiction, with emphases on the novel form, postcolonial thought, and eco-criticism. 

Kiang's articles on friendship in Edwardian and 20th-century English fiction 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 Shih-Shu Ching’s novel City of the Queen: A Novel of Colonial Hong Kong was published in The Global South in 2018. In 2019, his essay on H. G.

Currently, he is at work on the Fall 2021 special issue of The Global South (topic: contextualizing the Anglophone novel), and an article on the Windrush generation in Sam Selvon's novels.    

Born and raised in Hong Kong, he has spent significant amounts of time in Florida and Massachusetts, both homes away from home. On the weekend, he often frequents local coffee shops and noodle joints--ramen or pho--in Uptown and Midtown OKC. 

His favorite author is E. M. Forster.
