Personal profile

Research overview

Nikoletta's research encompasses Augustan and Early Imperial Latin poetry, and follows a cultural-historical approach, which is interested in close readings of the texts against their wider background. She is currently preparing a monograph on sisters, focusing on Latin epic but effectively tracing their literary history across genres from Homer to the Flavians, and taking into account all evidence of their ‘real-life’ Roman counterparts. A second monograph will follow, which examines the motif of viewing from above in Latin epic, the topic of her Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship.

Teaching activity

Nikoletta teaches across sub-honours and honours in Latin and Classical Studies; her honours modules include Roman Epic and Women in Myth. She is also involved in the teaching of the MLitt core and Latin optional module; for the latter she delivers seminars on Written Women and Space in Latin Literature.

She has been Teaching Fellow in Latin and Classical Studies (2012-2014), Leverhulme Early Career Fellow (2014-2017), and Lecturer in Latin (2018-2019).
