Research topic during fellowship: Contextualizing Mobility and Immigration in Roman Myth and Latin Epic

New contextualizations of Greek mythological figures in Roman literature have always triggered many stimulating readings both in terms of ideology and metapoetics. Such discussions acquire further interest when when the subject comes around the various foundation myths and stories found in the core of such contextualizations with regard to the political, social, ethnic...
