Professor Matthew Leigh

Research

Professor Leigh has broad interests in Roman culture and tends to work on the borders of Latin literature and Roman history. He has recently completed papers on Vergil's pastoral poetry and the slave economy of ancient Sicily and on the historical tradition regarding the early kings of Rome. His study of ancient ideas of curious and meddlesome behaviour - From Polypragmon to Curiosus - was published by Oxford University Press in 2013 and he is currently preparing an edition of Book 1 of the Controversiae of Seneca the Elder.
