Eleni Manolaraki, Cornell University Ph.D. in Classics, is associate professor of Classics at the University of South Florida.  Before coming to USF, she taught at Williams College in Massachusetts and at Washington University in Saint Louis. Her book Noscendi Nilum Cupido: Imagining Egypt from Lucan to Philostratus (De Gruyter 2012) explores Greek and Roman representations of Egypt between the first and third centuries CE. This project was funded by a summer grant by the National Endowment for the Humanities (2006) and a summer grant by the USF Humanities Institute (2008). Manolaraki has published articles and book chapters on various aspects of Roman culture with emphasis on historiography, travel narratives, and natural history. She is co-author and editor of Wiley-Blackwell’s popular textbook A History of Rome. At USF she teaches Latin at all levels and General Education courses on Classical topics.
