Amaranth Feuth is a postdoctoral researcher at LUCAS working within the Anchoring Innovation project. She holds a doctorate in classical receptions from the University of Leiden and is currently working on classical receptions in English-language literature.
Fields of interest
How are classical receptions in the works of contemporary female, Black, American writers anchored in classical literature? What is the relationship between the education of Black female authors such as Toni Morrison, Rita Dove, Harryette Mullen, and Donika Kelly, and their receptions of the classics? I try to gain insight into and enhance awareness of these issues as a female, white scholar in Europe.
