The research of Lien Foubert focuses in particular on the representation of women in the Graeco-Roman world, using both literary and non-literary sources. After completing a dissertation on the public and private roles of Julio-Claudian women, she now concentrates on the subject of women's (im)mobilty in the Graeco-Roman world.
