Staff Profile

Dr Oliver Passmore

Associate Researcher

Background

I read Classics at St Andrews (MA, 2004-8) and Cambridge (MPhil, 2012; PhD, 2016). My doctoral thesis studied the role of choral song and dance in early Greek hexameter poetry.

I was a Teaching Fellow in Greek in the School of History, Classics and Archaeology at Newcastle University (Jan-Sep 2017). Currently I'm a Visiting Fellow within the School. Before coming to Newcastle, I was a graduate teaching assistant and faculty supervisor within the Faculty of Classics at Cambridge.
