I am an assistant professor in the Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures and the Institute for World Literatures and Cultures at Tsinghua University in Beijing. My research specialties are German literature and philosophy from the Enlightenment to the present, intellectual history, and political theory. My current book project, The Politics of Writing, examines the relationship between constitutional theory and the history of written media. As a teacher, I offer classes on literature (especially German, English and American), political philosophy, intellectual history and more. I am also an experienced language instructor.
