Leo Palmer

Leo Palmer is graduate researcher in the field of Classics. His current thesis examines fifth-century Athenian democracy in its social, political and religious context, and makes the case for a complex, gradual evolution of Greek democracy, rather than viewing it as a product of revolution. Leo’s Honours thesis investigated the social functions and origins of the ritual worship of Dionysus in Greece and was a co-winner of the Alexander Leeper Prize awarded in 2023.
