- Ancient Drama (esp. Euripides, Menander, Seneca)
- Greco-Roman Households
- Ancient Identity
- Historical Fiction
I am currently writing a book chapter on gender and household in antiquity. I am also writing articles on identity and destruction in Seneca's Troades, and on bloodshed and bloodlines in the Octavia (Ps. Seneca).
- Ancient Greek, occasionally Latin
- Greek and Roman Drama
- Women in Ancient Greek Literature
I am invested in digital learning. I am co-creator (with Pauline Ripat, UWinnipeg) of Vice Verba, a game format app for learning Latin verb paradigms. We are working on a Greek version, Hoi Polloi Logoi. Ketos, a site for first year students learning Ancient Greek using Athenaze, is a project of mine. One day I hope to teach the classes on death in Greco-Roman antiquity, historical fiction, and animals in ancient literature.
I have supervised projects on imperial Roman plastic surgery, fatherhood in Plautus, and the use of animals in late Republican literature. In the fall I will begin supervising a student working on the role of men and women in Greek tragedy. I am happy to supervise future graduate students.
