Research interests

I currently oversee four research projects, all of which are involved with finding new approaches to the study of ancient history, with particular interests in experiences of marginalisation and subordination, as well as a focus on the role that space and senses had in affecting behaviour in ancient Greece. Much of my work has been based in Central Greece, with Boiotia and Thebes providing much of the interest.

Subordinates and Subordination in Ancient Greece (with Prof David Tandy)
The Peloponnesian War (with Prof Robin Osborne)
Aristophanes and the Current Political Moment (with Prof Constanze Guthenke)
