Curriculum vitae

Paul R. Goldin (Ph.D., Harvard University, 1996) is Professor of East Asian Languages & Civilizations at the University of Pennsylvania, where he has taught since 1996. My main area of research is Warring States China (5th to 3rd centuries B.C.). Although my focus is intellectual and cultural history, the study of this period is necessarily interdisciplinary, and my work also involves archaeology, art history, literature, philosophy, and religion.
