QIAO Jiyan is a PhD candidate at Leiden Institute for Area Studies (LIAS), specialising in Chinese intellectual history. Her PhD project examines the oeuvre of China’s foremost intellectual Su Shi (1037-1101) and seeks to establish the relative importance of his different types of writings as seen by himself, including his Echoing Tao Yuanming (和陶) poems, three classical commentaries (經學三書) and philosophical essays. Born in China but self-identified as a global citizen, she did her master’s at Harvard University and lived in Manhattan for a year. She likes learning about different cultures and experiencing new things, especially the more artistic ones.
