Alec Studnik

Alec earned his BA in Classics and History with high honors from the University of Miami in 2023. His research interests include Homeric poetry, aristocratic gender roles in Archaic Greece, and ancient representations of athletes and heroes. Alec’s undergraduate thesis, Mother Bear, Golden Sword: The Mênis of Demeter, attempts to reconcile the seemingly atypical application of anger vocabulary in The Homeric Hymn to Demeter. Through comparative linguistics and mythology, he is currently working to expand his research on aristocratic society and emotion in the Homeric texts as well as the ancient and modern receptions of those portrayals.
