Members of the centre work on the literatures and cultural history of the Roman Empire from the late Hellenistic period right through to late antiquity. All of the projects within the Centre are tied together by attention to a single overarching question: how were established literary forms reconfigured in response to the political and cultural changes that followed the first sustained contact between Greece and Rome in the second century BC, and especially the new monarchical and imperial order inaugurated by Augustus?
