Personal Interests
I am interested in questions of cross-cultural comparison, and the relationship between classical texts and contemporary thinking and paradigms. I'm currently working on a comparative study of sport in both Western thought and its possible analogues in the Chinese social and intellectual traditions. I am a fan of the English Premier League football team Everton, and have written about the question of fandom.
