We are delighted to welcome Professor Shadi Bartsch to the summer school. Shadi is the translator of Virgil's Aeneid, and will deliver a talk entitled "Aeneas Polytropos".

She works on Roman imperial literature, the history of rhetoric and philosophy, and on the reception of the western classical tradition in contemporary China. She is the author of a number of books on the ancient novel, Neronian literature, political theatricality, and Stoic philosophy. Her translation of Vergil’s Aeneid was published in 2020.
