Before joining UCL, I studied Classics on both sides of the Atlantic: at Wellesley (BA 2003), King’s College Cambridge (BA Hons 2005), and Princeton (MA 2008, PhD 2011).  Following the completion of my doctorate at Princeton (during the last year of which I also held a lectureship in Classics), I returned to Cambridge where I taught various topics in Classics and English at several colleges.  Having been raised in New York, I am happy to be based once again in a global city and to join UCL starting September 2012.

Research Summary

At present I am completing two book projects on the ancient Greek tragic chorus. The first is a monograph, Playing the Chorus: Greek Tragedy Beyond the Choral Ode, which offers a new interpretation of the tragic chorus by examining its many roles and capabilities. In Playing the Chorus I present a two-part account of the chorus’ dynamism: the first explores the interactive dimension of the chorus, which participates in the action and communicates with actors in sung exchanges. The second focuses upon its physical adaptability, in particular the manner in which tragedians alter their physical configuration (e.g. splitting or augmenting the chorus in various tragedies, in order to create semi-choruses or secondary choruses). With Thomas Coward (KCL) and Theodora Hadjimichael (LMU Munich) I am also editing Paths of Song: The Lyric Dimension of Greek Tragedy, which locates ancient tragic drama within a larger map of Greek lyric activity, stressing that tragedy was a vital participant at the centre of a wider Greek song-culture. The volume expands on findings from the Paths of Song conference held at UCL in 2013. Additionally, I have forthcoming articles on other aspects of Greek tragedy.

While at UCL I have also been developing a second major research strand on Hellenic Classicisms in Latin America. With Konstantinos P. Nikoloutsos (Saint Joseph's University, USA) I am editing a volume on the rich and varied reception of ancient Greek and Roman drama in the region, building on the Greeks and Romans on the Latin American Stage conference which I organised at UCL in June 2014. I have also started investigating the surprising ways in which ancient Greek drama assumed a new afterlife in the distinctive cultural and political climate of the twentieth century Hispanic Caribbean.

In addition to the A. G. Leventis Foundation, my research has been supported by the British Academy, the Harvard Center for Hellenic Studies, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Woodrow Wilson National Fellowship Foundation.
