Welcome to series three of Foreword! This series we will be bringing you interviews with our graduate student researchers in our Classics, History, and English MA programs, as well as our Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD program.

Today's featured guest is Shakeel Ahmed, an MA student in the Department of Classics and Archaeology. Shakeel shares with us his research on homosexual culture in Ancient Athens, the importance of queer history, and how the study of the ancient world continues to be relevant to modern issues.
