Examination Fellow since 2016
I am currently looking at ‘women beyond wifehood’ in classical Athens, exploring women’s interpersonal relationships and social networks. I have previously looked at how textiles in the Homeric epics memorialise the labour and identity of women who are excluded from dominant narratives and memorialising processes.
