Research overview

Professor Lee specialises in the culture and cultural history of China and its diaspora from the nineteenth-century imagining of China the nation-state to today. His areas of interest include collective memory, censorship, the technical/technological society, the Anthopocene, and the ideology and representation of work. He is particularly interested in the contribution premodern, pre-Chinese thought — as found in the Zhuangzi 莊子 — may make to the resolution of contemporary problems.

His current research project involves creating an archive, and writing a multi-volume history, of Chinese culture 1976-2020.

He has supervised numerous doctoral students in the fields of Chinese Studies and Transcultural Studies.
