My work examines the intersection of Roman material culture (art, architecture, archaeological finds, inscribed texts) and social history. My research has investigated the unofficial rules governing Roman sexuality, the social impact of Pompeian graffiti, and the modern reception of Pompeii, and I am currently working on a monograph exploring the physical, social, and emotional environment within Pompeii’s “purpose-built” brothel. This body of research aims to recover the contours of agency for marginalized groups like male and female prostitutes, penetrated men, and lusty women, and is thus influenced by and contributes to feminist and queer theory.
