About:

Olga received her B.A. in Modern and Ancient Literature from the University of Bologna, with a thesis on the Role of Aspasia as magistra Socratis in Plato’s Menexenus. She spent one year of her B.A. at University College London and the first year of her M.A. at Dickinson College, where she became familiar with different teaching and research methods. She wrote her Master’s thesis in Classics in Bologna, on the Polydeuces episode in Apollonius Rhodius and Theocritus in order to investigate the influence of Homeric epic on their texts. Her passion for comparative and interdisciplinary approaches led her to focus her research on Greek drama, performance and the creation and development of bonds among characters on stage.
