Bio/Research

My research focuses on the intersection of ideology and literary form, particularly in Roman literature and its reception. Trained as a literary scholar, I have become more interested in politics over time. Current projects include: the exemplum and exceptional politics from Cicero to Augustus; shifts in Roman political thinking about safety and security at the transition from Republic to Empire; the reception of Roman civil war tropes in nineteenth century French literature in collaboration with Barbara Vinken; a volume on exemplarity and singularity, co-edited with Susanne Luedemann; thinking through tropes, a faculty seminar funded by the Neubauer Collegium (http://neubauercollegium.uchicago.edu/faculty/thinking_through_tropes/) ; transformations in the public sphere between Cicero and Horace.
