Yunning came to UChicago after receiving a B.A. in Spanish Philology from Peking University and a MPhil in Spanish from the University of Oxford. Her work focuses on the literary Baroque, and its 20th/21st century readaptation in Latin America and the Caribbean. She is also interested in East-West Encounter (or the discourse of the Other), especially Latin American modernist/postmodernist writers’ experimentation with Oriental religion/philosophy and non-alphabetic writings.
