David Delbar’s research interests focus primarily on representations of masculinity and sexuality in Greek and Roman literature. This includes the influence of classical myth on later works beyond the classical world. His MA thesis was on developing a critical pluralist approach to analyzing classical myths in modern works, including adaptation theory, intertextuality, reception theory, and thematology. In his spare time he researches representations of werewolves in all media and time periods as an amateur lycanthropologist.
