Research

Kiri Paramore works on the interaction between political thought and cultural tradition in East Asia. His work is 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 East Asia. He is currently working on a new longue durĂ©e history which engages these contemporary issues under the tentative book title The Global Politics of Confucianism: from cosmopolitanism to fascism.

Curruculum vitae

Paramore was born and grew up in Sydney and studied Asian Studies and Asian History at the Australian National University, Canberra (B.A.S. (1997) Hons. (1999)). While completing his studies he worked for the Australian Department of Defence, and after graduation the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. Under the auspices of a Japanese Ministry of Education and Science research scholarship awarded in 2000 he completed two postgraduate degrees in intellectual history at the University of Tokyo (M.A. 2003, Ph.D. 2006). In 2007 he took up his current position at Leiden. He has been awarded grants and fellowships from the Institute of Chinese Literature and Philosophy, Academia Sinica, Taipei, the Institute of East Asian Studies, University of California, Berkeley, and a number of institutes and universities in Japan.

Teaching

I currently teach both the shared core introductory course for all Area Studies and Oriental Studies related programmes at Leiden, and the core introductory course for International Studies students in The Hague. Together with teaching a survey in Japanese History, this means I teach about 1,200 students annually. In all these courses I use the History of Political Thought as an entry point to address broader issues of agency and culture in historical and political science related disciplines. I also regularly teach an M.A. research seminar and lead postgraduate reading groups on issues in East Asian intellectual history.
