Dominic Toscano is assistant professor of Chinese. His specialty is the literary and cultural history of medieval China, especially of the Tang dynasty (618-907), that great age of poetic flourishing widely regarded as one of the high points of premodern Chinese political and cultural achievement. He is currently at work on his first book, an exploration of the crucial few extant contemporary poetry anthologies from the Tang, which offer us a fascinating window onto the tastes and values of writers living during this oft-mythologized period. Toscano teaches courses on Chinese language and literature.
