Andrew Worley

Like many of my PhD colleagues, I (unimaginative fellow that I am) aspire to a career in academia. I have been fortunate enough to have undertaken a wide range of teaching within the Department - something I enjoy greatly. On the research and publications front, I have been accepted for a number of papers at various conferences, am contributing a chapter to a forthcoming book on Greek and Roman historians' themes and sources, approached to submit a conference paper to a prominent journal, and hopefully will have another as part of a collected proceedings.

In terms of future researches, I am interested in the political capabilities and official reaction toward the ancient tavern, the neglected historian Herodian, and thinking about intonation in antiquity.

However, should this prove to no avail, I may simply become two elderly gentlemen (who haunt the pages of a certain departmental journal) full-time, and gamble the small stipend on the boat-race.
