Sophia Hsu teaches a range of courses, covering such topics as nineteenth-century British literature, the novel, and the medical humanities. She is currently working on a book project about the Victorian novel and its relation to histories and theories of the population, a project that has been supported by a 2021–22 AAUW American Fellowship. Research from this and other related projects has been published or is forthcoming in SEL Studies in English Literature, 1500–1900, Dickens Studies Annual, Victorian Review, and English Language Notes. Prof. Hsu is also the co-founder and co-developer of Undisciplining the Victorian Classroom, a digital humanities project that reimagines how to teach Victorian studies through a positive, race conscious lens.
