Personal profile


Caitlan Smith is a doctoral candidate at the University of Western Australia, Perth in the School of Humanities. She has completed a Master of Philosophy in Ancient History at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland and a Taught Masters on the Hellenistic World from the University of Edinburgh, Scotland. Her academic background is in Art History and she has always had an interest in ancient Greek art, particularly that of the Hellenistic era. Since her undergraduate thesis on the Terme Boxer, her research interests have been centred on ancient athletics. She takes an innovative and interdisciplinary approach in her research methodology by viewing the ancient athlete through the lens of modern sport science. 

Current projects

Her current doctoral research in Australia under the supervision of Dr Lara O’Sullivan and funded through the Australian Government Research Training Program Scholarship examines athletic wounding and injury – a relatively untouched topic in scholarship to date.
