Dr Rosie Wyles researches the cultural history of the ancient world through theatre performance. She did her undergraduate studies in Classics at Oxford and was awarded her PhD on the ancient performance reception of Euripides from the University of London in 2007. This was part of the AHRC-funded project on the reception of ancient theatre undertaken by the Archive for the Performance Reception of Greek and Roman Drama, Oxford.
Before joining Kent, Rosie held posts at the University of Oxford, the National University of Ireland, Maynooth, the University of Nottingham and at King's College London.
Rosie's research interests include Greek and Roman performance arts, costume, reception within antiquity and beyond it, and gender.
Rosie is part of the Artefacts and Society research cluster.
Rosie teaches classical mythology, Greek drama, ancient Greek and Latin literature, and reception.
After being selected to be a part of the first BBC Female Experts media training scheme (2013), Rosie has since contributed to both television and radio broadcasts:
