Research Interests

Greek and Roman novels

Imperial Greek literature, esp. the thorny question of whether the imperial Greeks read Latin literature

Augustan poetry of the first century BCE

Troy in the imperial period

I am interested in how Greek literature written under the Roman Empire in the first three centuries CE responds to Rome. In my DPhil thesis (which I am currently converting into a monograph) I argue that the Greek novels were engaging with Latin literature in all sorts of surprising and subversive ways. My new project looks more broadly at how Greeks of the imperial period generate strategies for resisting Roman power and how this is linked to their engagement with aspects of Roman culture. In this connection the role of Troy is currently my central focus.
