Carolina Lopez Ruiz

The Divinity School is pleased to announce that Carolina López-Ruiz will join the faculty as Professor, effective July 1, 2022.   A scholar of ancient Mediterranean cultures, her research focuses on comparative mythology and cultural exchange in the ancient Mediterranean. Central to her work is the idea that mythological narratives and religious practices act as loci for cultural exchange and provide mechanisms for groups in close contact to negotiate tensions, adopt to change, and bolster their resilience.
