Research interestsLatin literature and its reception. My current book project explores concepts of authorship, biography and literary criticism in Virgil’s ancient reception; more broadly, I maintain research interests in Latin poetry and prose, the history of scholarship, reception studies to the present day, and literary and cultural theory (especially feminist and queer studies).
