Greg Woolf FBA directs the Institute of Classical Studies at the School of Advanced Study in London where he has a chair in Classics. He has written on many aspects of the cultural history of the Roman world, including question of cultural change and identity, literacy and human mobility. He has a particular interest in the archaeology of Rome's western provinces and is an Honorary Professor at the UCL Institute of Archaeology.
Woolf has been researching aspects of Roman religious practice for more than twenty years, often in collaboration with Prof Jörg Rüpke of the University of Erfurt, where Woolf is an associated fellow of the Max Weber Kolleg. Together they lead the Sanctuary Project funded by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. He is currently co-editing a volume on the Roman Sensorium, arising from a recent exchange with Prof Jaime Alvar of the University of Carlos III Madrid.
