Dr Selena Wisnom
Junior Research Fellow in Manuscripts and Text Cultures
I initially read Classics at St. Hilda’s College, Oxford, before moving to Wolfson to take up graduate work in Cuneiform Studies. My MPhil and DPhil focused on Babylonian poetry, and alongside my research I wrote a trilogy of plays set in ancient Assyria. Subsequently I held an AHRC Cultural Engagement Fellowship, working to build links between theatres in Oxfordshire and the university. I arrived at Queen’s in 2016 as the first Junior Research Fellow in Manuscripts and Text Cultures.
