Claudio García-Ehrenfeld is a researcher at the Centre of Classical Studies in the Institute of Philological Research at UNAM (National Autonomous University of Mexico). He was born into a bicultural Mexican-Argentinean family and grew up in Mexico City where he completed his BA in Classical Literature at UNAM. He has studied and worked in England, obtaining an MA in Classical Literature at the University of Nottingham and a PhD in Classical Studies and Philosophy at King’s College London. Claudio focuses on provincial literature of the second century CE from a narratological and anthropological perspective and in particular the writings of Lucian of Samosata and Apuleius of Madauros. He has studied classicism in Mexico as a cultural phenomenon tied to imperalism and colonization and has written about the contact between Classical culture and Hñähñu culture with an emphasis on decolonization. Claudio’s work is driven by an interest in the potential and limits of philology and classical studies in addressing environmental and humanitarian crises of contemporary Mexico.
