Alessandra Tafaro

Alessandra Tafaro, who was an award holder at the BSR in 2022, joined us from Macerata where she has been a Postdoctoral Researcher since 2022. She completed her BA and MA Degrees at the University of Rome, ‘La Sapienza’ and her doctoral studies at the University of Warwick.

Alessandra’s research sits at the juncture between Latin literature and Roman epigraphy. During her BA fellowship at the BSR, she will work on a project entitled ‘Inscribing Anonymity: Unauthored Poetry in Roman Epigraphic Culture’ – which will provide a ground-breaking analysis of a hitherto underexplored corpus of anonymous metrical inscriptions from Rome and Pompeii (I century BC-II century AD), filling a crucial gap in scholarship. Through the interpretive frame of anonymity, the project will redefine our understanding of political discourses, negotiation of identity politics, aspects of gender relations, practices of citation, and modes of authorship.

Alessandra is based in Rome. You can contact her at a.tafaro@bsrome.i
