My teaching is divided between the Department of Humanities and the Asia Canada Program. Humanities courses I teach are principally related to the intellectual and cultural history of China but, given the long history of human mobility in East Asia, can also consider those topics in relation to India and Japan. Courses consider the history of Buddhist, Daoist and literati culture in East Asia with a strong focus on their textual legacies. Insights from these cultural domains are frequently considered in terms of their relevance to contemporary socio-political and, ecological and economic challenges. My Asia Canada teaching focuses on the intersection of identity, culture and migration with attention paid to the history and evolution of multiculturalism public policy and philosophy in Canada.

 

Research and publication is divided into two areas: Firstly, analysis, interpretation and translation of classical Chinese texts related to self-cultivation. Many of these texts are found in the Ming dynasty Daoist canon; secondly, modern Canadian Buddhist institutions are considered in relation to migration. Research on a major project looking at the practices of spirit-medium groups in Hong Kong and Canada is ongoing.
