Dr Ed Sanders

Ed Sanders is an Associate Lecturer teaching the ancient Greek set text course at Birkbeck.  He is also an Honorary Research Associate at RHUL, attached to the Centre for Oratory and Rhetoric (COR) within the Classics department.

His research focuses on emotions in ancient Greek literature, and his current project is on the strategic arousal of audience emotions in the Attic oratorical corpus and speeches in Classical Greek historiography.  He held a Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship on this topic in 2011-14, worked with a large research project on Greek emotions at Oxford in 2009-10, and before that did a PhD at UCL on Envy and Jealousy in Classical Athens (published as a monograph with OUP).  He has also edited/co-edited two volumes, Erôs in Ancient Greece (OUP) and Erôs and the Polis: Love in Context (BICS supplement), and is currently co-editing Emotion and Persuasion in Classical Antiquity (forthcoming Franz Steiner Verlag).
