PAIXUE Associate Members

Professor Michael Höckelmann

Michael focuses on the intellectual and institutional history of mid-imperial China, in particular the Tang Dynasty (618–907). He is interested in (among other things) how ideas and thoughts permeate institutions and how social and political institutions impact on the ways in which people think. After a stint as a Research Fellow with PAIXUE, he now holds a professorship at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg. Together with Dr Foteini Spingou, he is the main organiser of the PAIXUE Symposium in December 2019.
