Eleanor Betts

I am an Associate Lecturer and Lecturer in Classical Studies at the OU, teaching and writing on modules in Arts and Classical Studies, ranging from Level 1 to 3, and MA. These include AA100 The Arts past and present, A219 Exploring the Classical World, A276 Classical Latin: the language of ancient Rome, A330 Myth in the Greek and Roman worlds, A340 The Roman Empire and the MA in Classical Studies. I have always enjoyed being a tutor, and am in constant awe of the commitment of OU students, many of whom are juggling work and home life along with a degree.

Outside teaching, my research explores Roman urbanism and religion in Roman and Iron Age Italy, with an emphasis on sensory studies, which is a growth area in Classical Studies. I have published on the development and application of multisensory approaches to understanding people's construction, experience and use of Roman urban and ritual space, and sensory approaches to ancient Italic sacred landscapes. The highlight of this year has been to see my edited volume Senses of the Empire: Multisensory Approaches to Roman Culture in print!
