Cimitero delle Fontanelle

Greetings! Welcome to my site about votives, memory and the evolving religious landscape of Campania, Italy.

Initially the site was intended as a place for posting field notes and interviews relating to my current research project on 'Antiquity and Memory in the Shrine of the Blessed Virgin of the Rosary in Pompeii'. However, I've expanded it to include some of my earlier research too, in an attempt to gather these publications into one place and to make them more accessible.

The 'Books' tab takes you to an annotated list of my co-edited volumes and monograph, with descriptions, reviews and links to related Open Access resources.

The 'Articles' tab leads to a selection of chapters and articles, which I've reproduced here in pre-publication versions for reasons of copyright. There are also some blog posts and interviews on this page.

The 'Audio' tab contains snippets of fieldwork interviews, and recordings I've made for other sites including our podcast Classics Confidential and our Open University journal Practitioners' Voices in Classical Reception Studies. Most of the audios that I've posted here relate to the region of Campania.

The site is currently under construction, so please come back soon! In the meantime, you can find more details of my academic publications on my Open University webpage.
