Charles Tesoriero Senior Lecturer in Latin at the University of New England
Sarah Lawrence is the Charles Tesoriero Senior Lecturer in Latin at the University of New England. Sarah had an unconventional path into academia, involving several interruptions; most significantly, she spent over four years teaching full time in a high-school prior to taking up the Charles Tesoriero Latin Lectureship at UNE. Sarah is a passionate teacher who is committed to social justice via education, and her efforts as a teacher both face to face and online have been recognised with a National Teaching Award in the Australian Awards for University Teaching, 2017.
As a researcher, Sarah is driven by a desire to try to understand the mental landscape of Romans in the late Republic and early Empire; she has explored this in publications and presentations looking at the way concepts such as pain, oratory, philosophy and ‘race’ are depicted in prose texts, with a particular emphasis on Valerius Maximus and Seneca the Elder.
One of Sarah’s other passions is contributing to creating a community of scholarship that focuses on mutual-support, and rigour that goes hand in hand with kindness and respect.
Sarah is willing to mentor across all disciplines in a way that suits the mentee. She has the capacity to mentor a maximum of two mentees at any stage.
