Helen Lovatt

Associate Professor in Classics,


I have been teaching at the University of Nottingham for ten years; in that time I have taught widely across the whole range of the department’s modules from first year overview lectures to PhD supervision. I have published books on Statius and Epic Games (Cambridge, 2005) and The Epic Gaze: Vision, Gender and Narrative in Ancient Epic (Cambridge 2013). When I came to Nottingham I described my research interests as ‘Latin epic, especially Statius’; now I’d describe them as ‘Greek and Latin literature and its reception, especially epic’. I regularly teach modules on Latin language, literary theory for MA students, Jason and the Argonauts, and Virgil and the Epic Tradition. I have also been in charge of admissions for undergraduates in the Department of Classics on and off for nine years.
