Professor Matthew Leigh

Research

I have broad interests in Roman culture and tend to work on the borders of Latin literature and Roman history. I have 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. My study of ancient ideas of curious and meddlesome behaviour - From Polypragmon to Curiosus - was published by Oxford University Press in 2013 and I am currently preparing an edition of Book 1 of the Controversiae of Seneca the Elder.
