Dr Jansen's Leverhulme Research Fellowship Success
17 April 2015
The Fellowship will allow Laura to complete a monograph for Cambridge UP, titled Borges' Classics. This is the first study in any language exploring the engagement of Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges (Buenos Aires, 1899 - Geneva, 1986) with Greco-Roman antiquity. Her monograph examines how Borges' appeal to the classical past opens up new understandings of his oeuvre, and it considers how this process in turn renders new insights into classical literature, philosophy, and culture. Laura hopes that the book will offer dynamic and interdisciplinary discussions for readers of Classics and modernist literature.
