Ellie Bennett is an Assyriologist with a strong interest in Gender Studies. Her PhD thesis (University of Birmingham) focussed on the ‘Queens of the Arabs’ during the Neo-Assyrian period, which explored both female rulers and Pre-Islamic Arabian history and archaeology. Ellie’s previous work was a further exploration into gender studies and investigated the masculinities used by the Neo-Assyrian kings in their titles and epithets.
