I completed my BA and MA in Classics at the University of Belgrade (Serbia) before coming to Penn. I am interested in the dynamics of satirical discourse in Roman literature, including moralistic tropes and decline narratives that pervade many genres. In the future, I would like to explore how political and social traditionalism influenced the shaping of literary texts.
I am also fascinated with the continuity of Latinity from Ancient down to modern times. In my own use and in teaching I try to make use of as much active Latin as possible. Another passion of mine, not completely unrelated, is historical linguistics.
