Anne-Sophie Noel

Adjunct Assistant Professor Department of Literature

I am a philologist and cultural historian of ancient Greece, with a specific interest in drama, performance studies and objects as meaningful anchors for an interdisciplinary approach to Greek drama. I am preparing a book that will shed a new light on objects staged in Greek tragedy by combining cognitive theory and things studies, and a historical investigation into the 'life' of these objects on and off-stage. I taught on "Helen of Troy, from Homer's Iliad to Hollywood movies" in Spring 2017. Selection of forthcoming publications: “What do we actually see on stage? A cognitive approach to the interaction of visual and aural effects in the performance of Greek tragedy,” in P. Meineck (ed.), Classics and Cognitive theory, Routledge (spring 2018). “‘Prosthetic imagination’ in Greek literature,” in Prostheses in Antiquity (Medicine and the body in Antiquity), edited by Jane Draycott, Routledge (spring 2018). “Thinking through things: objects and distributed cognition in Greek tragedy,” in F. Budelmann, I. Sluiter, Minds on stage: cognitive approaches to Greek tragedy, Oxford University Press (2018)
