Kristin Mann’s main research interests are the Greek and Latin fable collections, the literature and culture of the early Roman Empire, and the ancient Greek novel. Her dissertation, The Fabulist in the Fable Book, examines how the presence of the fabulist in the fable book – his biography, his self-characterizations, and his statements of purpose – combine to form a hermeneutic frame through which the fables may be interpreted. She is currently working on an article on the pedagogical purpose of the poetic quotations in Seneca’s Epistulae Morales.
