Daniel M. Youd -- A graduate of Harvard College (AB) and Princeton University (MA, PhD), Daniel is Professor of Modern Languages and Literatures at Beloit College in southern Wisconsin, where he has been a member of the faculty since 2002. Teaching courses on Chinese language and literature, Daniel's research interests focus on literary manifestations of cultural contact between China and Western Europe from the sixteenth through the early twentieth centuries. Most recently Daniel has spent time in Rome at the Archivum Romanum Societatis Iesu and the Vatican Library researching the philosophical and theological speculations regarding the nature of language and translation that emerged from early Jesuit encounters with Chinese interlocutors and the texts they revered (especially the Yì jīng, or Book of Changes). Daniel is also a member of the Board of Directors of the Qi Shu Fang Peking Opera Company of New York City. He is the company's script translator and grant writer.
