Alexa Piqueux is Maître de Conférences (Assistant Professor) in the Classics Department at the University Paris Ouest-Nanterre. She studied at the Ecole Normale Supérieure (Paris), Paris Ouest-Nanterre and the Sorbonne, when she completed a PhD. Her dissertation explores the representations of the body in Greek Comedy in the classical time, as it was staged, perceived and imagined, through a study of textual and visual evidence. She has written several papers in classical philology and art history. Her research focuses mainly on comic performances in Athens and Magna Graecia, dramatic poetry, italiot iconography, and interaction between texts and images. She is currently contributing to an annotated translation of theatre-related paragraphs in Pollux’Onomasticon’s fourth book directed by Christine Mauduit, working in particular on the list of comic masks.
