Postdoctoral Leverhulme award for Chloe Bray

Following the recent success of passing her PhD, Chloe Bray has now been awarded funding from the Leverhulme Trust for a two-year research fellowship at Ruprecht-Karls-Universität Heidelberg, Germany. This funding will allow Chloe to work on a monograph entitled “Ancient Greek Landscape between the Intelligible and the Unintelligible”, which will look at fears and anxieties concerning human agency in the natural world in ancient Greek texts. Chloe will explore representations of non-urban landscape in epic, tragic, and historiographic literature, and analyse how they could manipulate the audience’s emotions and their experience of time. Using a blend of theory from phenomenology and cognitive studies, the project will provide an insight into ancient perceptions of the world and bring Classics into closer dialogue with the cross-disciplinary field of landscape studies. 

Many congratulations to Chloe!
