Episode 50: Dr. Victoria Austen

Dr. Victoria Austen’s research focuses primarily on the intersection of literature and material culture in the analysis of Roman gardens and landscapes. More broadly, she is interested in Latin literature, especially from the Late Republic and Early Empire; Roman history and material culture; race and ethnicity in the ancient and modern world; and the reception of Classics in modern media. She has taught classes covering a wide range of topics, from Latin literature to the reception of the ancient world through film, as well as mythology, history, and visual and material culture.
