Amanda Klause is in her second year of the PhD program in Classics at Princeton University. She graduated from Swarthmore College with a double major in Latin and Greek in 2012. Amanda gave a response paper at the graduate Postclassicisms workshop in Cambridge in June 2013 and attended the Postclassicims conference on the 1920’s in Princeton in January 2014. Amanda is interested in Roman Imperial literature and its constructions of gender and the exotic, as well as in issues of its reception. Her forays into the realm of the postclassical have been wide ranging. She has recently done work on projects focusing on the translation of Roman poetry in Restoration England and on the relationship between antiquarianism, travel literature, and the development of national identity in 18th-century France.
