Supratik is fascinated by the intersections between Greco-Roman, Near Eastern and Indian history. In recent years, he has been thinking about the understudied Arsakid Empire, which dominated the Near East from around 247 B.C. to A.D. 224. Through his doctoral work he aims to demonstrate that the Arsakid state should be understood as both Hellenistic and Near Eastern and therefore hopes to challenge the traditional division between ‘Classics’ and ‘Oriental Studies'.
