My main research interests lie in the field of antiquity after antiquity, and in questions of the disciplinary shape of Classics and the history of scholarship: why, and how, do classicists ask the questions they ask? I have published a monograph on the literary representations of contemporary Greece in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries (Placing Modern Greece, Oxford, 2008). My current book project, entitled Feeling and Philology: Studying Antiquity in Nineteenth-Century Germany, forthcoming from Cambridge UP, is a look at the lasting rhetorical strategies and organizing metaphors of scholarship. I am currently working on a new project on symphilology and questions of scholarly community, and I continue to be interested in the transnational aspects of scholarship, asking what happens to classical knowledge when it migrates between places and contexts (especially in Europe and America). I teach on a wide range of topics and genres in Greek literature (tragedy, comedy, epic, philosophical dialogue, ancient biography) and their afterlife, as well as on Modern Greek literature and culture. I am also a founding member of the Postclassicisms collective (www.postclassicisms.org), and I am currently the editor of the Classical Receptions Journal, published by Oxford University Press.
