Anne-Sophie Noel

Adjunct Assistant Professor Department of Literature

I am a philologist and cultural historian of ancient Greece, with a specific interest in drama, performance and reception. Currently a scholar-in-residence at American University, I am preparing a book that will shed a new light on objects staged in Greek tragedy by combining affect and cognitive theory, object studies, and a historical investigation into the 'life' of these objects on and off-stage. I have taught Greek, Latin and French languages, literatures and civilizations, in a variety of institutions (Lyon and Paris, France; Exeter, UK, among others). I taught on "Helen of Troy, from Homer's Iliad to Hollywood movies" in Spring 2017. I will teach on "Women in Classical Antiquity" in Spring 2018 (History department).


Former fellow at Harvard's Center for Hellenic Studies (postdoc); PhD Classics, Université Lyon 3; BA and MA Classics, École Normale Supérieure de Lyon; 'Professeur agrégée de lettres classiques'
