My name is Anna Foka and I am Assistant Professor in Information Technology and the Humanities at Humlab, Umeå University. I hold a PhD in Classical Philology and Ancient History from the University of Liverpool. My broad research interests include cultural and social history, history for different frames, constructions and perceptions of socio- cultural identities, historical concepts of gender and sexuality, and the relationship between historical culture(s) and contemporaneity. I have published in the fields of gender and humour in Graeco-Roman culture, the reception of antiquity in popular culture, and digital history. I am currently exploring technological innovation within academia and how it contributes to knowledge production.
