"Both Classics and Women's Studies have shaped my research interests. I am currently looking at first century Roman elegiac poetry, asking questions such as: What can we learn from these texts about gender and power relations in ancient Rome? What can a text written by a smitten lover tell us about a culture that earlier generations studied to learn about law and military history? Can a poem that celebrates the simple pleasures of the Italian countryside teach us anything about Rome-the most powerful city the world had known?"

"My specialized area of research is focused on modern and contemporary American art, specifically contextual and theoretical issues associated with the Abstract Expressionist, Neo-Dada and Pop Art movements. I am particularly interested in studying the intersection of these artistic tendencies with forms of mass visual culture, as well as their relation to trends in American philosophical thought."
