Research interests

My main research interests are in Greek drama. I have published extensively on Greek Comedy, Old and New, with particular emphasis on formal and political questions and the nature of audience response. I am interested in theoretical approaches to comedy, from ancient literary criticism to the latest cognitive science. My major monograph is Politics and Anti-Realism in Athenian Old Comedy: the Art of the Impossible (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2011). I work closely with my colleague Costas Panayotakis in working on popular comedy in a way that bridges Greek and Roman, Classical and Modern. The international conference ‘Rethinking Popular Comedy, Ancient and Modern’ was held in Glasgow in August 2013.

I am also have research interests in Greek tragedy: my short monograph on Prometheus Bound was published in 2012 with Bloomsbury Academic. I am working on a series of articles on Greek tragedy, re-examining debates about the politics of the genre through the theory and practice of radical democracy.  I am also interested in the interface between tragedy and history. Together with my colleague Lisa Hau, I am editing a collection of papers on Truth and History in the Ancient World: Pluralizing the Past for Routledge (submission in 2015), based on a panel at the 2012 Celtic Conference in Classics at Bordeaux.

In addition to Greek drama, I have also published on Roman comedy and Roman satire and popular verse. I also have research interests in Greek technical writing and in particular am developing a project on Hero of Alexandria's work on automata.


Grants

2004-5 AHRC Research Leave Scheme


Supervision

I am particularly interested in supervising in the following areas:

  • Greek drama (comedy and tragedy), including reception and translation
  • Roman satire
  • Greek technical writing

Outside these areas, I am open to proposals, particularly in Greek poetry and classical prose authors.

I am currrently lead supervisor on one PhD thesis, a translation and commentary on the first book of Aetius of Amida's De Simplicibus, and from October 2014 on a translation and commentary of the Roman medical writer Scribonius Largus.

I have previously supervised doctorates on the construction of the Greek hoplite (seciond supervisor; submitted) and on  monsters, monstrosity and masculinity (Dr Heather Rae, 2013). I have also supervised masters theses by research on the reception of Greek tragedy (the reception of Sophocles in the twentieth century; and Greek tragedy and postmodern constructions of gender) and on ancient technical writing (the construction of ancient mechanics; and a study of Scribonius Largus).


Teaching

At Honours, I convene the following courses in translation:

  • Interpreting Greek Tragedy (next taught in 2011/12)
  • Reasons to be Cheerful: Theorising Comedy with Aristophanes and Menander (2012/13)
  • Putting the Gods in their Place: Low Culture and Mythological Burlesque (2012/12)

and I offer the following courses in Greek (subject to demand):

  • Greek Tragedy
  • Greek Comedy
  • Greek Prose Style
  • Greek Unprepared Translation

I have also taught Greek Epic, Greek Lyric Poetry, and Latin Unprepared Translation and Prose Composition.

At pre-Honours, I convene Classical Civilisation 1A: Greece from Troy to Plataea (lecturing on Hesiod, Greek lyric poetry and aspects of Greek society) and beginners Greek (Greek 1A and 1B). I teach on Classical Civilisation 2A: the Civic Discourse of Classical Athens (lecturing on tragedy, comedy, Lysias and Plato) and occasionally lecture on Plautus for Classical Civilisation 1B: Republican Rome and on Juvenal for Classical Civilisation 2B: Imperial Rome.

I previously convened or taught on Greek 2A and 2B (advanced or post-beginners Greek). I have also taught on the parallel Latin courses.


Additional Information

I am also engaged in the translation of classical texts, particularly for the modern stage. In 2007, I provided the literal translation for the National Theatre of Scotland's production of the Bacchae, adapted by David Greig and directed by John Tiffany, which opened the 2007 Edinburgh International Festival (reviews from the Herald, Independent and Telegraph).
