My research focuses on the roles of women in Roman religion and the intersections between Latin literature and epigraphy. In an article entitled “Time and Eternity: The Vestal Virgins and the Crisis of the Third Century” (forthcoming in TAPA) I examine how the traditional theme of time and eternity gained increased significance to the Vestals, a powerful group of female priestesses, during an era of religious conflict and political instability. I am also examining the roles of the Vestal Virgins in conflict resolution narratives for an international conference series relating classical models of conflict resolution to conflict in contemporary Latin America. Additionally, I am working on papers entitled “Always Advanced by Her Recommendations: The Vestal Virgins and Women’s Mentoring” and “The Fictores on Inscriptions from the Atrium Vestae.” In my article “A Blight on the pax Augusta: The Robigalia in Ovid’s Fasti” (Classical World 2018) I examine Ovid’s unusual feminine characterization of Robigo, an ancient Roman agricultural deity. Other publications include “Inscriptional Intermediality in Livy” (Trends in Classics 2019) and “Inscriptions on the Capitoline: Epigraphy and Cultural Memory in Livy” (forthcoming, Cambridge University Press). When teaching I strive to give increased presence to female historical, literary, and mythological figures, incorporating women and gender into class discussions and assignments. At UNL I am offering a broad range of Classics and Religious Studies courses, including an advanced Latin course on the Fasti.
