Colleges, School and Institutes
My current projects are:
- the reception of classical literature and myth in contemporary writing by women, and the translation/adaptation of classical literature by women writers.
- a book on Catullus with particular emphasis on the performative aspects of his work
I have written on forms of closure in Roman and Hellenistic poetry, on the representation of Rome in film, and on Catullus.
Willingness to take PhD students
I welcome research proposals on women’s writing and classical reception, and on any aspect of Roman republican or Augustan poetry.
