Dr Krishnan Ram-Prasad
I am a Julia de Lacy Mann Fellow and Early Career Researcher (Junior Research Fellow) in Classics and Linguistics at Merton College.
My research focuses on comparative Indo-European syntax and syntactic reconstruction. I completed my PhD in 2022 on the syntax of relative clauses in Proto-Indo-European, and I am in the process of developing this research into a monograph for Cambridge University Press. In addition to comparative and diachronic syntax, I also work on developing synchronic analyes of ancient Indo-European languages. Those I have a particular specialism in include Latin, Ancient Greek, Sanskrit and Hittite.
Alongside my syntactic work, I have a line of research in critical and decolonial approaches to the discipline(s) of Classics and Comparative Philology.
I tutor for a range of undergraduate courses in both Linguistics and Classics. I have also taught language classes in Latin, Ancient Greek, Sanskrit and Old English. You can find out more about my teaching repertoire and research on my website.
