Biography <p>My first degree was in Latin Studies&nbsp;at the University of Edinburgh. After that I did a Masters in Professional Writing at London Metropolitan University.&nbsp;In 2008&nbsp;I was awarded the first Michael Comber Studentship for Classical Reception Studies, which was jointly provided by the Open University and St. Hilda&rsquo;s College, Oxford. I worked on the reception of the Roman poet Catullus in Romantic-era Britain, which ultimately resulted in my first book&nbsp;<a href="https://global.oup.com/academic/product/a-cockney-catullus-9780198744887?cc=gb&amp;lang=en&amp;" rel="nofollow"><em>A Cockney Catullus&nbsp;</em>(2015)</a>.</p><p><a href="http://www.oxfordscholarship.com/view/10.1093/acprof:oso/9780198744887.001.0001/acprof-9780198744887" rel="nofollow"><img alt="" src="http://www.open.ac.uk/people/sites/www.open.ac.uk.people/files/images/henry_cockney.jpg" style="float:left; height:237px; margin:5px 10px; width:150px" /></a>After my PhD I&nbsp;became a Post-doctoral Research Associate of the Archive of Performances of Greek and Roman Drama (Oxford), working for a spell on the<a href="http://www.apgrd.ox.ac.uk/about-us/programmes/performing-epic" rel="nofollow">&lsquo;Performing Epic&rsquo;</a>project.
