Introduction

What is your name?: TJ Eckhart

How old are you?: 39

Male or female?: Female

When is your birthday?: September 25th

Who is your favorite historical person? Why?: I can't say that I have a favorite but I have a least favorite: Aristotle. Honestly how this one man became so important in later history is beyond me.  If you read his work in comparison to other philosophers I think he simply pales by the comparison. He merely was one voice in a world rich with education and teaching, yes, he did tutor Alexander the Great but still later readers and scholars give him far too much credit for his influence and quality of work than necessary.

What is your favorite historical god/godess: Why?:  Again, I don't have one.  I do study Amazons, however, my dissertation and I hope my first and second scholarly books will be exploring the value and use of this cultural icon that was and continues to be popular.

Why did you join this community?: I am an ancient historian and I just started a LJ to talk about what life is really like for ancient historians.  I thought that might interest people in this community and I thought that from time to time I might have something useful to add to the conversation here.

Sincerely,
TJ Eckhart
