Assistant Professor of Classical Studies
Greek and Roman drama; ancient music and dance; theatrical reception; mythology.
My primary field of research in Classical Studies is ancient drama, focusing at present on the role of music in the tragedies of Euripides. I have written on the significance of lamed figures in Greek mythology, on the use of masks in Attic tragedy, on the imagery of dreams in Aeschylus' Oresteia
, and on singing actors in Sophocles' Trachiniae.
As an dramaturge and director, I have worked extensively with modern stagings of ancient texts, and for the past five years have experimented with the active speaking of Greek and Latin as an instructor for the Paideia Institute.
