I'm a PhD candidate interested in representations of animals in antiquity, especially in fables. I'm also enrolled in the Indigenous Language Revitalization Designated Emphasis. My dissertation looks at animal fables in Greek literature, using Ojibwe traditional stories (dibaajimowinan) and the work of Indigenous scholars to provide alternate perspectives to tricksters, myth, and human-animal relationships in the Greek fables.
