Laura Steele

As a former NIU College Transformation Project Fellow (2013-2015), I continue working to engage students more actively in the general education course in Classical Mythology (FLCL 271). I welcome any feedback regarding this course! Please feel free to email me:

In addition to the analysis and artistic/literary representations of Greco-Roman myth, my other academic interests include ancient Mediterranean gender and sexuality, interconnections between the Near East and Greece, ancient architecture from the Neolithic to early Rome and archaeological sciences.
