Elena Heran

Elena Heran is a PhD Candidate in Classics & Archaeology. Her thesis centres around the treatment of male and female characters in Ovid’s Metamorphoses, examining the ways in which the poet’s fascination with Roman male anxieties, such as fatherhood, desire, reputation, and the transition from boy to man, leads to the oversimplification and marginalisation of the poem’s female characters. She is interested in gender studies, literary criticism, and the study of emotions, and loves to write.
