DR J ALISON ROSENBLITT
WELCOME TO MY ACADEMIC WEB-PAGE
Postal address: c/o Regent’s Park College, Oxford
I am Senior College Lecturer in Ancient History / Director of Studies for Classics at Regent’s Park College (Oxford). Follow links here for my Regent’s Park College profile and my Faculty of Classics (University of Oxford) profile.
I work on the late republic, especially Sallust, who appeals to me because he watched his world fall apart and because he is fascinated by troublemakers— even if not always sympathetic to them. My own focus is particularly on Sallust’s Historiae and on Sallust’s representation of Roman rhetoric. I have also been working recently in classical reception, especially on the modernist American poet E.E. Cummings. I like the way that Cummings responds to Classical verse: ambitious, provocative, and disobedient.
I have moved my main web presence to my new homepage: https://www.alisonrosenblitt.com. Please visit me there for an updated site.
