Professor Eleanor Dickey
Professor Eleanor Dickey is a Professor of the Classics and Ancient History department at the University of Reading.
Professor Dickey is the departmental linguist, specialising in the history of the Latin and Greek languages (their development from Indo-European through the ancient languages we usually study to the modern Romance languages and modern Greek) and in how those languages were taught and analysed in antiquity. Her work is interdisciplinary, involving both Classics and linguistics.
She received a Marc Fitch Fund Small Research Grant from the British Academy in 2012, and has benefited from AHRC funding which has allowed her to trial Latin language textbooks in local schools.
