Prof. Julia Kindt

Department of Classics and Ancient History

Julia Kindt is Professor in the Department of Classics and Ancient History, and a current ARC Future Fellow (2018-22). She is currently working on a book entitled ‘The Trojan Boar and Other Stories: 10 Ancient Creatures that Make us Human’ which investigates how the understanding of what makes us human emerges out of our entanglements with animals from antiquity to the present. She is interested in how the ancient evidence speaks to current debates in the environmental humanities and human/animal studies, and in how the methods and concepts developed in these fields of study can inform scholarship on the ancient world.

Julia Kindt is a Research Lead on Animal Stories.
