My main research interest is public engagement with the classics, including viewer (or audience) reception of the classics in popular film and television, and creative engagement with classical myth.  Modern texts I have worked on include Xena: Warrior Princess, Charmed, Torchwood, Doctor Who, HBO Rome. Starz Spartacus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, BBC Atlantis and Game of Thrones.  I am also interested in classics and feminism, and receptions of classical myth and literature focussing on female characters.  Recently I have been working on the intersection between creative writing and classics, and classics and comics and animated films.


I am currently working on a volume for the EUP Screening Antiquity series, entitled Ancient Epic in Film and Television, which I am co-editing with Hunter Gardner from USC. Target date for publication December 2021.
