Collin Moat is a recipient of the James and Carolyn Kolokotrones Endowed Graduate Research Fellowship for 2022. Collin Moat (Ph.D. student, Classics) is broadly interested in the Classical Environmental Humanities, and his current research focuses on the dynamic relationship in early Greek literature between heroes and trees, which were both revered as proverbially persistent, sometimes sacred beings and considered a valuable source of raw material. As a part of this research, he recently presented a paper on Achilles’ entanglement with the Pelian spear in the Iliad at the Classical Association of the Middle West and South’s annual conference. He will use the fellowship to support his travel to the American School of Classical Studies in Athens where he will continue his research and participate in the Academic Year program, which allows students to study the art, archaeology, history, and environment of Greece firsthand.
