Classical Studies: I am interested in a number of folkloristic topics, including: maritime folklore; Basque folklore; the relationships between folklore and nationalistic movements; and various mythologies, though especially those from ancient Mediterranean civilizations. Apart from folklore, I am interested in ancient Egyptian, Near Eastern, and Greek history and how we remember these cultures historically and contemporaneously.
