Projects
  • Betraying Hibernia
    Betraying HiberniaI run a blog that focuses on unlikely classical receptions; i.e. movies, books, strange Renaissance recreations of myth, plays, fashion. This connects with aspects of my dissertation, which looks at how post-conflict societies connect with antiquity to help understand their pain and convey a sense of healing.
