Dr Nicolo' D'Alconzo
I was born in Padova, where, some time later, I also learnt Greek and Latin and completed a BA and an MA in Classics. I spent some beautiful years in Swansea for my PhD, and I came to Exeter in September 2015.
My main area of interest is the Greek novel, and, more broadly, literature of the Imperial time. In my doctoral thesis I have analysed works of art as a unifying feature of the novels, which has expanded my field of research to ekphrasis and rhetorical theory and practice, and also to iconography and theory of art.
