Chrubasik Boris

Assistant Professor Classics and Greek History
University of Toronto


Boris Chrubasik is Assistant Professor of Greek History and Classics at the University of Toronto. Currently, Dr. Chrubasik’s research focusses on the political and cultural history of the Eastern Mediterranean from the Achaemenid to the late Hellenistic periods. He has a particular interest in questions of social power, ranging from ideas of kingship in the Seleukid empire—the largest of the successor states that emerged after the death of Alexander the Great—to the relationship between local power-holders and larger empires. He also works on questions of cross-cultural exchange between Greek and non-Greek communities in the regions of southern Asia Minor and the Levant. In the Classical Civilization program in the Department of Historical Studies he teaches a wide range of Greek history courses ranging from the second millennium to the first century of our era. Current course offerings include: Introduction to Greek history (CLA230H5); Early Greece (CLA360H5); Classical Greece (CLA361H5); The Hellenistic Period (CLA362H5), and The Persian Empire (CLA390H5). He also enjoys supervising undergraduate students through Independent Reading Courses and the Research Opportunity Program (ROP).
