Jennifer received an Honours Bachelor of Arts with high distinction from the University of Toronto in 2021, double majoring in Classics and Classical Civilization, with a minor in English. Her primary areas of interest are ancient drama, particularly Aristophanic comedy and Euripidean and Senecan tragedy, and depictions of gender, sexuality, and the body. Her undergraduate research examined the use of costume and pubic hair depilation in Aristophanes’ Thesmophoriazusae through the lens of queer critical theories. Additionally, Jennifer was part of the Bay of East Attica Regional Survey (BEARS) team, has co-authored an article published in the AJA which proposes the role of women as ceramic producers in the Early Iron Age, and is interested in the relationship between material culture and literature.
