Research Interests:

Basically I am a sociologically oriented historian of education and culture(here culture means the textual, visual products made by scholars, artists, and the popular culture industry). I am also willing to do some school work so as to understand and better the curriculum products made by the teachers.

I have studied many subjects which are mainly originated from the ideals and actions of the past Chinese scholars and educators, such as, the discourse conflicts and the struggle for the authority of educational reform and Confucianism reconstruction invented by leading scholars and educators in 11th century China, how modern Chinese scholars and educators found the space in the field of higher and secondary education to implement their modern academic discipline curriculum, and the teaching life of modern influential Chinese scholars.

In 2009, I accomplished another piece of research work. That is about why Michael Foucault and Pierre Bourdieu tried their best to break away from German rational Philosophy, Satre’s Existentialism, and other previous existed forms of knowledge they disliked, how they could win finally in the high rank educational and academic institutions which were controlled by the knowledge power they intended to fight against.

Compared and competed with other professional people, how can the professional educational scholars survive in the university, and then find something important and good to do in the struggling world? My latest studies aim to find the answers from the wonderful history of education and of other cultural professions.
