Chun Xiao Bai
Assistant Prof. of Ancient Greek History, Zhejiang University

I am a lecturer in ancient Greek history in the History Department at Zhejiang University. I research especially Thucydides. For me western classics are relevant because western culture has continuously influenced China for more than a century. Therefore, I believe, it is really necessary for a contemporary Chinese, especially a modern intellectual, to study classics, the origin of western culture. Personally, I am enthusiastic about ancient Greek history and especially passionate about the art, architecture, sculpture, philosophy and literature of ancient Greece. Classics is not only a sort of profound knowledge to contemporary Chinese, it penetrates modern civilization including some contemporary symbols as well. Therefore, it is pretty essential to introduce the background to citizens, even those people who received average education. I would like to see this project introduce grammar, provide texts, and explain background knowledge of Greek and Latin to Chinese students. In my opinion, digitalization is a new trend to convey classical studies, and I am very optimistic for the future of the project.
