I am currently doing my dissertation on the sensory life of literati living in the late Ming to early Qing period, with a focus on both textual and material resources. I am trying to bring Western philosophical thinking into the field of Chinese literature study, at the same time join the Western conversation on senses with early modern Chinese examples.
