For my PhD project about winds in Greek drama, I focus on how the images and scenes about wind, air, clouds and related meteorological occurrences reflect the discourse of the fifth century BCE, especially in terms of philosophical speculations on the divine, medical exploration of bodily and mental functions, and fifth-century intellectual currents. These interests are motivated by the intriguing question of the relationship between human and nature, and the fascinating and comparable thoughts about wind and soul in ancient China.
