Biography
After completing my PhD (Cambridge, 2002) I taught for six years in the Bristol Classics department. I joined the UCL department in September 2007.
Research Summary
My research explores the intellectual history of classics in modern European thought from the late eighteenth century to the present. I examine how an engagement with the classical past has given rise to a particular understanding of modernity. I am currently working on a project entitled Socrates and the Jews: Hellenism and Hebraism from Moses Mendelssohn to Sigmund Freud which explores the role of the opposition between Greeks and Jews in Enlightenment and post-Enlightenment thought.
Teaching Summary
I have taught a wide range of options in Latin and Greek language and literature as well as courses in Reception, Philosophy and Critical Theory.
