My dissertation focuses on Greek choral poetry of the 6th and 5th centuries, and the evolution of choral lyric and its incorporation into Athenian tragedy. More broadly, I am interested in archaic Greek poetry and classical Greek literature. I also maintain interests in literary theory and comparative literature, particularly with respect to different constructions of imperialism and "other-ness" in both ancient and modern texts.
