I joined the department in 2012 after graduating from University of Warsaw with MA summa cum laude in Classics. My doctoral project, Postclassical Choral Performances, explores choral culture of ancient Greece after 350 BCE. This project challenges the common rhetoric of a decline in choral lyric after the Classical period. It continues my strong interest in interdisciplinary approaches to Classics, and lies at the intersection of performance studies, cultural history and traditional philology. I investigate non-canonical popular texts and the role they played in the new cultural milieu. The issues I discuss in my work are divided into four main areas: creation of sacred space through choral performances, dramatization of choral narrative, ritual and religious transformations of choral lyric, and the adaptations of choral performances to the new social and political reality. My other recent work includes explorations in cognitive theory and theoretical approaches to ancient audiences and spectating.
