Project Description

Through the generosity of the A.G. Leventis Foundation, the Department of Classics, Ancient History, Religion and Theology is delighted to be offering an excellent funding opportunity for exceptional researchers across a range of subjects within the area of Classics and Ancient History, on any aspect of Greek or Roman Antiquity.

The Department prides itself on its vigorous research culture, in which postgraduate research students play central roles.
All members of the Department have specific research interests and activities, which together cover most aspects of the languages, literature, history, philosophy, society and material culture of the Greek and Roman worlds. Current major research projects include ancient medicine, Greek impact on non-Greek cultures, Classical Reception, ancient migration, Roman connectivity, fragmentary literature and Greek political thought. This award carries no preference for any particular area of classical research, although applicants should address the question of why Exeter is the right institution for their doctoral project.
