My name is Richard Rawles, and I am a classicist, presently working as a lecturer in the University of Edinburgh. I have a particular interest in Greek poetry.
You can look at my biog. webpage at the university.
I have in mind to post (not too frequently) on a mixture of subjects, some political and cultural and some more closely related to my work as a teacher and researcher in classics.
Where I post about teaching, I shall take particular care not to do so in a way which would allow my students to recognise themselves or to be recognised by others. But if you are a student of mine and believe that I have written something about you which you would prefer that I hadn’t, please write to me and ask me to take it down!
Needless to say, I am not blogging here as a representative of anybody other than myself.
