Research Expertise

Description

My principal research interest is Greek narrative literature of the post-classical era (the Hellenistic period and Empire), when Hellenic culture 'went global' and Greek was the lingua franca of much of the eastern Mediterranean and the Near East. Migration and interaction with other cultures (Near-Eastern, Egyptian, Roman) forced writers of Greek to redefine their relationship with the 'homeland' and its cultural and literary tradition and to re-invent 'Greekness' itself as a cultural rather than an ethnic concept.

Keywords
