PhD in Classical Studies
435 S State St, Ann Arbor, MI 48109-1003
Nick received his B.A. from the University of Chicago in 2010. His research is primarily focused
upon narrative techniques in Roman literature, and he has presented papers on the metatheater of Plautus, on ironic characterization in Sallust, and on the (faulty) narrator in Ovid’s Fasti. At the moment, Nick plans to write his dissertation on Roman ideas of architecture in the poetic imagination of the Augustan age, exploring what happens when the architectural conceptions that underlie the “Augustan programme” enter into the poetic medium of Propertian elegy, Horatian lyric, Vergilian epic, as well as into the “games” that Ovid plays with all three.
When not pondering the nexus of poetry and architecture in Ancient Rome, Nick enjoys running
at dawn, framing “reality” with his camera, and a good cup of warm (caffeine-free) tea no matter
what the season.
