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.
My research interests range broadly across
the spectrum of Greek literature and its afterlife: from fifth century drama, to the Greek literature of the Roman Empire, to the reception
of ancient tragedy and comedy in the modern world.
At present I am working on four book projects, all of which address two distinct but complementary areas: ancient Greek tragedy, especially the chorus, and the reception of classical drama in Latin America.
Ancient Greek Tragedy
1) Playing the Chorus: Greek Tragedy Beyond the Choral Ode (monograph)
2) Paths of Song: Interactions between Greek Lyric and Tragedy (edited volume with T. Coward and T. Hadjimichael)
Reception of Classical Drama in the Modern World
3) Greeks and Romans on the Latin American Stage (edited volume with K. P. Nikoloutsos)
4) Tragedy and Revolución: Refashioning Greek Drama in the 20th c. Hispanic Caribbean
At UCL I teach a range of courses on classical language, literature and
culture. Recent and future courses include:
Undergraduate: Interpreting Greek Literature (CLAS1205); Greek Tragedy (CLAS2106); Greek Comedy (CLAS7107); Intermediate Greek B (GREK2002); Greek Translation (GREK7009), Latin Translation (LAT7011)
Postgraduate (MA): Greek Drama 1, Sophocles: Oedipus and his children (CLASGG10A); Approaches to the Reception of the Classical World (CLASGR12), 'Key Theories and Methods for Reception Studies' and 'Reception within Antiquity: Greek' sessions
I am also the academic adviser for the Greek & Latin department’s annual Classical play at the Bloomsbury Theatre (2013: Euripides' Trojan Women; 2014: Aristophanes' Clouds; 2015: Euripides' Bacchae).
