Background

I submitted my dissertation, a study of the Mao recension of the Shijing, in 1996, and spent the following years as a researcher at various universities in the US, Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and France. Between 1999 and 2002, I was a ’junior professor’ in Chinese at Stockholm University, and then for several years a reader in Philosophy and Aesthetics at Södertörn University.

Research

My research deals mainly with early Chinese poetry, poetics and intellectual history but also with early Greek and Roman poetics, and the early history of European sinology. I am also the editor of the Bulletin of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (BMFEA).
