Leah Kalmanson

My research focuses on the traditions of East Asia, especially the time period of China’s Song and Ming dynasties. My teaching commitments over the years have pushed me to engage more material from religious studies, including work from anthropology of religion, history of religion, sociology, and theology. These teaching activities in turn pushed my scholarship toward  the question of the construction of the categories “philosophy” and “religion” in European intellectual history. My current involvement in global-critical philosophy of religion reflects both my philosophical and meta-philosophical interests in, and commitments to, diversifying the practices of academic philosophy.
