Research

Away 2021-22, returning 2022-23

My research focuses on two important fields of Graeco-Roman history: Classical Athens and the Later Roman Empire. I am particularly interested in questions related to social networks, religious conflicts and identities, as well as gender studies. During my stay in Cambridge, I will mainly pursue a project entitled "Masculinity on Stage: Gender and Politics in Classical Athens", in which I will analyse the effects of the democratization of Athens on the notions of masculinity.
