Juliette Harrisson completed an AHRC-funded MA in Myth at the University of Bristol before returning to the University of Birmingham (where she did her BA) to complete an AHRC-funded PhD in Classics. Her thesis, Cultural Memory and Imagination: Dreams and Dreaming in the Roman Empire has since been expanded and adapted to produce the monograph Dreams and Dreaming in the Roman Empire (Bloomsbury 2013). Her research focuses on myth and religion in the ancient world, particularly the Roman Empire, and on the reception of ancient Greece and Rome in modern popular culture.
Juliette is currently working on a collaborative project with Dr Antony Keen of the Open University on representations of Roman Britain on screen, and contributing to a forthcoming Companion to Ancient Greece and Rome on Screen.
Juliette teaches all of Newman’s Ancient History modules, currently comprising Introduction to Ancient History, Gender and Sexuality in the Ancient World and Ancient Myth and Religion. She supervises all dissertations relating to Ancient History.
