More information about Kiri Paramore

Research

Kiri Paramore works on the interaction between political thought and cultural tradition in East Asia. His work is increasingly positioned in the field of global intellectual history, with a focus on the early modern period in East Asia. He has written on the intellectual histories of Confucianism, Christianity and liberalism in East Asia, focusing on their impacts in mainstream politics. He has more recently written a number of articles and interventions attempting to historicize present debates on the Confucian resurgence underway in contemporary China. He is currently working on a new longue durée history which engages these contemporary issues under the tentative book title The Global Politics of Confucianism: from cosmopolitanism to fascism.
