研究|Academic Research

I received my PhD in Religious Studies from the University of Edinburgh and have worked for the European Studies Centre, University of Oxford and the Department of Sociology, Purdue University. I am interested in religion and politics, in particular comparative studies of secularism, socialism, and political religion in Europe and Asia-Pacific.

I write bilingually and contribute for outlets including Los Angeles Review of Books.

Currently I am working on 1) a book monograph on how “ai” (愛 love) as an affective concept made its way into the Chinese vocabulary and the ways in which it has been appropriated as a political discourse in modern China – in other words, this book is about the politics and politicisation of “love”. A paper that overviews this project could be found here: Critical Research on Religion.

2) Postsecularism in Asia: https://ting902.com/2019/07/12/beyond-sing-hallelujah-to-the-lord-colonialism-cold-war-identity-transformation-and-hong-kong-protests-from-the-perspective-of-religion/
