Have a very specific and important query for any of you who might have an
A prospective PhD student I know of through a colleague is wanting to do a PhD
dissertation on the Xue Heng School (a re-interpretation of them as NOT as
conservative as we have thought, or as much as the May 4th/New Culture people
My query is this: does this student need dept. support (advisors/teachers) who
know classical Chinese. Is that rather crucial for doing such a project?
The dept/program in question does not have anyone who knows classical Chinese
and they are all wondering if or how necessary this would be.
Do let me know-- even mere opinions would be helpful.
