Nephele Papakonstantinou is currently an Alexander von Humboldt Post-doctoral Research Fellow at the Institut für Klassische Philologie at JMU with a project on normative constructions of iniuria under the Late Roman Republic and Early Empire. Her research focuses on Roman Literature and Culture of the Early Empire, and more specifically, on Roman rhetoric (Quintilian and the declamations), Roman legal practice, and Graeco-Roman Medicine. Her work explores the relationship between the self and the norm. Her undergraduate study in Classics was conducted at the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. Her Master’s degree and Doctorate (2017) in Latin Language and Literature were earned from Université Paris Sorbonne - Paris IV. She is the author of a number of peer-reviewed articles and chapters in edited volumes, and of a monograph (under publication) on the construction of crimen raptus according to Pseudo-Quintilian, as derived from her dissertation. She has taught a wide range of subjects of Latin literature, mainly at the University of Athens (Department of Classics), where she has repeatedly served as an Adjunct Lecturer.
