Academic Interests and Specializations
In addition to her work teaching and conducting research, Lisa has been fortunate enough to have had various opportunities to apply her training in other contexts. For example, she has worked on the archaeological excavation of a Mycenaean (Greek Bronze Age) citadel on the Greek island Paros, and acted as the Greek textual consultant to director Marti Maraden on her production of Euripides’ Trojan Women, which opened in the Spring 2008 at the Stratford Festival, Stratford, Ontario. She has been an invited judge at the University of Alberta Undergraduate Research Symposium, and has supervised undergraduate research initiatives funded by the University of Alberta. She has also written and taught various courses for different institutions at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and has supervised numerous graduate students on their final projects.
