Research Areas

My research focuses on Archaic and Classical Greek literature and society. My primary interests lie in how social institutions, ideological frameworks, and language and literature interact with one another, particularly in regards to the construction of group identities. In my current research, I examine how food in Archaic and Classical Greece contributes to the construction of geographical space as ‘near’ and ‘far’ as well as how food and drink consumption create social categories that contribute to constructions of civilised/uncivilised and Us/Them. This latter area derives from my dissertation research, which examined how archaic sympotic poets constructed social and political identities in sympotic lyric. I have secondary interests in the reception of archaic poets by classical and post-classical authors.
