Jenna Rice's current research uses human-animal studies (HAS) to improve our understanding of the ancient Greco-Macedonian military sphere. Presently she is researching a case study of depictions of military dogs in Attic black figure pottery as well as an investigative survey of Attic portrayals of the camel. At the University of Missouri, she teaches early American history and enjoys drawing on antiquity to frame discussions of colonial concepts.
