My Bio:

Wu Ming, of Hakka ancestry, was born in Hualien, Taiwan in 1959.  He studied History at Tunghai University for his undergraduate. He received his PhD in History from National Chengchi University (NCCU), Taipei, Taiwan.  He was the chief executive editor for Unitas (聯合文學). Now he holds the position of History professor at NCCU. With a passion for classical music and a great love for Chinese calligraphy, Wu Ming is also a prolific writer; he writes articles reflecting his perceptions on life, art, and nature.  In his youth he loved to write about childhood experience living on the farm, and between 1960 and 1980 he wrote about the farmers’ lives in remote regions of Hualien.
