Director of Studies
Dr Giusti is a research fellow at St John's College.
Her doctoral and postdoctoral research focusses on the ideological writing and rewriting of history in the Augustan literary texts. Her PhD thesis (The Enemy on Stage: Augustan Revisionism and the Punic Wars in Virgil's Aeneid), which she is currently writing as a monograph, treats the construction of the Carthaginian Enemy from early Latin literature into the Augustan age and the conjunction of Punic and Civil wars in Virgil’s Aeneid. Her postdoctoral research project, currently entitled The Great Unmentioned in Augustan Poetry, is an investigation of historical characters and events whose unexpected absence from the Augustan texts is always ascribable, according to the cases, to conscious or subconscious forms of censorship and repression.
As Director of Studies Dr Giusti is responsible for choosing the best supervisors to work with you depending on the papers that you choose.
Dr Prauscello is a University Reader in Greek Literature and Language.
She is researching a project on a new edition and commentary of the fragments of the Boeotian poetess Corinna.
