A Boy and his Mum: the Story of Nero and Agrippina
Dr. Carey Fleiner's studies focussed on medieval history but have also included classical history and classical Latin, music and museum studies. She is programme leader of the new Classical Studies programme at the University of Winchester . Her current projects include involvement in a series of books by Manchester University Press for non-academics working on historical novels, screenplays, and other media. She is also working on a monograph about cultural influences on the music of the Kinks. Forthcoming publications include a chapter on Agrippina and Nero in a collection of essays, which she is co-editing, on Motherhood and Authority from Antiquity through the Early Modern Period, and an essay that compares how popular musicians (in particular string-players) were received and criticised by secular and sacred authority in the Middle Ages and in the United States in the 1950s and 1960s.
