Supervision and teaching
Areas of research supervision
I am happy to supervise work on Roman cultural history in general but particularly Roman attitudes to death, Neronian Rome, the younger Seneca. I have supervised a number of PhD theses now completed on responses to Rome in later periods, particularly nineteenth century Britain and would also welcome applications from students interested in pursuing topics in this area.
If you are interested in pursuing research in any of these areas, you should first read our advice on how to apply for MPhil/PhD research before submitting an application.
Greek and Roman social and cultural history; classical literature in its cultural contexts; responses to Greco-Roman antiquity in later centuries. The courses I teach include: Rome: From Republic to Empire; Approaching death in ancient Greece and Rome; Responses to Rome from the C18th to the C20th; Introduction to Classical Culture.
