Aequora Site Coordinator; Rome Fellow
Visala is from New York City and received her A.B. in Classics from Princeton University in 2017. She then received a Masters in Classical literature/languages from the University of Oxford in 2018 with a focus on early Greek hexameter poetry and reception theory. She is particularly passionate about the study of religion in the ancient world and classical reception in the poetry of W.H. Auden and W.B. Yeats. In the past, Visala has volunteered as a coordinator and teacher for Aequora’s Princeton location. She is grateful for the opportunity to teach and study with the other Rome Fellows this year.
