Gesine Manuwald - Biography#


Gesine Manuwald is Professor of Latin and currently Head of Department at University College London (UCL). Her research interests cover Roman drama, Roman epic, Cicero’s speeches and reception studies, especially Neo-Latin literature.

She studied Classics and English at Albert-Ludwigs-Universität in Freiburg im Breisgau and spent a year as an affiliate student at UCL. After her first degree, she continued to do a PhD and another qualification (the German "Habilitation") in Freiburg, where she had the opportunity to work as a member of a special research project on Roman tragedy. Subsequently, she enjoyed a generous five-year-research fellowship awarded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (Heisenberg-Stipendium), which enabled her to familiarize herself with international academia by several stays abroad and allowed her to focus on a commentary on Cicero’s Philippics 3–9.

She joined UCL in 2007, and there she continues to work on all her main research areas. She has since published books on Roman drama and Cicero, a co-edited volume on British Neo-Latin poetry, a monograph on the reception of Nero in opera as well as articles and edited volumes on Cicero and Roman epic.

Gesine Manuwald is interested in a variety of aspects of and approaches to Latin literature. This is reflected in her teaching, which includes courses on Roman drama, Roman historiography, Roman epic, Cicero, Latin letters, marginal authors and Neo-Latin literature (in the original language and / or in translation), and in the supervision of research students in a variety of areas of Latin literature.
