Hello there!

I am a political philosopher. I'm interested in defiance, and my research focuses on illegal activism (such as civil and uncivil disobedience) and the honouring of wrongdoers (especially through commemorative practices). I'm also interested in democracy, hate speech, political philosophy of language, and applied ethics. I work for the University of Stirling as a Lecturer. I am the winner of the AAP Prize for Innovation in Inclusive Curricula 2020.

I have published in the Oxford Studies in Political Philosophy, Ergo, the European Journal of Philosophy, and the Australasian Journal of Philosophy. I also have a co-authored paper on environmental activism at the Journal of the APA. You can find an overview of my research, information about my teaching, my CV, and my contact details, at the links above.

When I procrastinate, I write some public philosophy. Most of my stuff are in Mandarin, though I recently started to write in the English Speaking World. You can find some of them in Outreach. I occasionally translate some resources, which could also be found there.

My friends call me "Ten," short for "Ten-Herng." You may choose whichever you like. 

If you work on disobedience, social movements, commemorations, expressive harm, political authority, or any related topics, I would be more than happy to read your drafts and/or exchange papers.

My country of origin is Taiwan, not China. They are two rather distinct countries. May they stay that way, forever.
