Selected Publications

The list below contains selected publications which are freely available to view online. You can read a complete list of my academic publications here.

Dico, dico, dico: Latin in Popular Culture
The Domestication of Classical Mythology in the Chronicles of Narnia
The Classical Greek Practice of Incubation and some Near Eastern Predecessors (currently unpublished paper available to view on Academia.edu) 
Teaching Myth

You can read my PhD thesis, Cultural Memory and Imagination: Dreams and Dreaming in the Roman Empire, online. However, I have since written up the significant parts of the thesis as a monograph, which includes some expanded material, particularly on the academic debate surrounding ancient 'belief', so for a more up-to-date (and better written) version, you need the book, Dreams and Dreaming in the Roman Empire.
