PhD candidate - Language and Literature
B.A., the College of William & Mary, 2018

Rachel received her BA in Classical Studies with a minor in Italian studies from the College of William and Mary in 2018. Her undergraduate thesis, "A Song of Arms and of the Woman: Confronting Cleopatra in the Augustan Era through the Carmen de Bello Actiaco," focused on shifting cultural dynamics and the literary implications of Roman imperialism in the first century BCE. While at Stanford, she hopes to continue her work on P.Herc.817 and related texts. Her broad interests include physical and cultural space in poetry (from architecture to national boundaries and identities), the intersection of literature and material culture, fragmentary and problematic texts, and conceptions of the foreign in the Roman world.
