Project Title: The Space of Battles: The representation of conflict and the Italian landscape in Latin Literature of the Late Republic and Early Empire

Principal Advisor: Dr Janette McWilliam

Project Abstract: The research project examines Latin literary representations of “battle space”, that is, how the geographical and spatial details of battles, battlefields, armies and related phenomena of warfare are represented in historiographical and literary tropes. It will focus particularly on representations that mediate concepts of group identity, inclusion and exclusion, Roman territorial control, consolidation and empire.
