Assoc Prof Rick Benitez (Philosophy), Prof Peter Wilson (Classics and Ancient History), Dr Julia Kindt (Classics and Ancient History), and Assoc Prof Ian Maxwell (Performance Studies) have received a Faculty of Arts Collaborative Research Scheme grant as part of The Inspired Voices Research Cluster (IVRC). The IVRC will investigate the cultural significance of oracular, mythic and poetic inspiration, as found in historical, philosophical and poetic productions of 5th-4th C. Athens. The group combines expertise in ancient history, philosophy, classics and performance studies. The scheme is supported by the Faculty and the Deputy Vice-Chancellor of Research.
Congratulations to all involved in the research cluster, and particularly to Rick, Peter and Julia from SOPHI.
