Research Talk Series: Richard J. Sage

2023, 8th May

Richard J. Sage is a Research Fellow at the International Consortium for Research in the Humanities of the Friedrich-Alexander University of Erlangen-Nuremberg and Visiting Lecturer at the Institute of Sinology, Ludwig-Maximilians University of Munich. He earned a Magister Artium in Sinology, Chinese Art & Archaeology, and Mongolian Studies from the University of Munich and a PhD in Chinese Language and Literature from Hong Kong Baptist University. His primary areas of research are early Daoist traditions and texts and their interaction and interconnection with early Chinese Buddhist thought, with a special focus on commentarial literature produced up until the 13th century. His current research projects include a re-evaluation of the classic Liezi within the context of Wei-Jin era (220-420) thought, and the political instrumentalization of Daoist exegetical literature during the rule of Song Huizong (r. 1100-1125). Initial results of the latter are about to be published in T’oung Pao.
