Personal profile


My research is mainly oriented towards the Roman culture in general and the political history of Rome in particular. My PhD thesis Femina princpes. Livia's position in the Roman state is a thorough study of the foundations of Livia's position as the first empress of Rome. After having worked on the position of an empress, I was keen to find a way to study the opposite; female resistance to the imperial power, and I am now conducting a project entitled Roman Women on Trial. Female resistance in ancient Rome, granted by the Swedish Research Council. I have also written on topics such as the Roman triumph and the Classical antiquity in popular culture, and I am the scientific adviser for the Nordic artistic project Livia’s Room
