Manon Brouillet studied classics in Paris, at the École Normale Supérieure (2007-2012). In 2016, she received her PhD from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences sociales (EHESS). She wrote a dissertation entitled Des chants en partage. L’épopée homérique comme expérience religieuse. After her CHS Fellowship, Manon Brouillet has been elected as Associate Professor (Maîtresse de Conférences) at Université de Picardie Jules-Verne (Amiens). Her research on the Homeric epics combines historical and philological reading with anthropological questioning. Ethnological fieldwork in Burkina Faso with traditional singers led her to propose a new insight on the relationship between singer, audience, and the gods. She takes the Iliad and the Odyssey as crucial events in the ongoing experiment of Greek polytheism. Her research project during her stay at the CHS focused on the ritual dimension of the performance of the Homeric epics in Archaic and Classical periods, especially during panhellenic festivals.
