Dr. Shane Wallace

Assistant Professor (Classics)


Born in Limerick, I studied for my BA in Classics in Galway and my MA in Dublin (UCD). In 2006 I moved to Edinburgh to pursue a Ph.D. (awarded 2011), during which time I held a Marie Curie research fellowship at the école normale supérieure, Paris, and an Erasmus studentship at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. I returned to Dublin to take up the post of Walsh Family Lecturer at Trinity College Dublin in 2011. I work on the history and epigraphy of the Hellenisitic world, in particular mainland Greece, the Aegean, and western Asia Minor.
