Hsin-Mei Chuang 莊新眉

born in Taiwan, received her M.A. in journalism from the University of
Wisconsin—Madison after studying at the National Chengchi University in Taipei.
Since her teens, she has been keen to discover places in the more remote
corners of the world. Currently, she works as an independent cultural researcher
and writer with interests in Chinese and Taiwanese cultures, colonial history,
rural communities in modern society and intercultural communication.

Chuang is the team manager of Messmer/Chuang projects and has also worked
with numerous Swiss cultural institutions on exhibitions, publications and
research projects dealing with Chinese culture and art. Besides publishing
in English, she writes for the Taiwanese literary magazine Ink.
