Profile Information

University of Liverpool
Role in the Classics Classroom (real or virtual):
all of the above
About Me:
My name is Anna Foka [sic] and I come originally from the most beautiful island in the mediterranean- Cephallonia. Born and bred in Athens, Greece I obtained my degree (4 years BA) from the National and Capodistrian University of Athens in Theatrical Studies (specialised in Ancient cultures and theatre). I obtained my MA degree in Classics from the University of Liverpool. My MA dissertation dealt with the socio-political context of Greek Tragedy. I am currently a Ph.D. Candidate in Classics at the University of Liverpool and about to submit my Thesis (hurray!- really can't wait). My Ph.D. Thesis deals with the representation of alterities in Greek Comedy via the use of animal and divine characters/references.
I am currently a teaching fellow at the University of Liverpool and employed by Bolchazy- Carducci Publishers as an editor. My mission in life is to promote Classics and be the most horrifying computer geek in the whole wide world.
Favorite on-line spots for the Classics:
probably http://www.atrium-media.com/rogueclassicism/
Best/worst computer-related classroom happening:
Best: When, during a meeting in Second Life, I created the 'ivv' (in vita vera) abbreviation instead of 'irl' (in real life) along with some other latinists.
Worst: I'm always the one fellow lecturers summon upon when it comes to internet-techie related inquiries. *cries*

Supporting Classical studies in Norway.

En protestsida mot att klassiska språk vid NTNU är lagt ner, delvis eller i sin helhet. Ska fungera som ett öppet forum med den avsikt att återupprätta gammalgrekiskt och latin vid NTNU.

Haec est pagina ablationem et partim et totaliter linguarum antiquarum disciplinae de Universitate Trondempnis querenda. sit forum apertum, cuius consilium, nobis Graecum Latiumque referantur.

ἥδ' εστὶ σελὶς διαμαρτυρομένη μὴ καταλῦσαι ἢ μέρος τ' ἢ παντελῶς τὴν ἐπιμέλειαν τῶν τῶν πάλαι… Continue
