Author Biography

Sharon Sanderovitch, University of California, Berkeley

Sharon Sanderovitch is a doctoral candidate in Chinese Literature. She received her B.A. and M.A. from Tel Aviv University, Israel, in East Asian Studies and Religious Studies, respectively. Before arriving to Berkeley she spent three years in Beijing—initiated by the Chinese Government Scholarship for language training in China, and ending with a year as a visiting graduate student at Beijing University. At Berkeley, she focuses on early Chinese thought and intellectual history, with a particular interest in the pre-/Han discourse of sovereignty and the intersection of political theory and methods of self-cultivation. Other research interests include rhetoric and persuasion as attested in received and excavated sources, early Chinese Buddhism, early-medieval Chinese literature, and emotion studies. Sharon’s doctoral dissertation involves an investigation of the interplay of concealment and display in visions of ideal kingship and practices of imperial authority in the Han, concerning, in particular, the emperor’s body and rituals of sovereign mobility.
