Annual Classical Association of Canada (CAC) Lecture

Oct 18, 2012, 1pm-2:30pm

The Classical Studies Program invites York University faculty, staff and students to join them for the Annual Classical Association of Canada Lecture at York University.

The title of this year's lecture is, "Ventriloquizing Women: Explorations and Extensions of Classical Myth".

It is presented by University of British Columbia Professor Susanna Braund, Canada Research Chair in Latin Poetry and its Reception. Before moving to the University of British Columbia, she was a professor at Stanford, Yale, London, Bristol and Exeter Universities. Braund has published extensively on Roman satire, Latin epic poetry and Seneca, including editions of Juvenal “Satires” Book 1 and Seneca's “De Clementia.”

She has edited or co-edited six books, including the forthcoming Blackwell Companion to Persius and Juvenal, and has translated Lucan for Oxford World's Classics and Persius and Juvenal for the Loeb Classical Library. Her current research focuses on translation as a measure of reception in the cases of Latin poets including Virgil, Lucan, Seneca and Statius.

All are welcome to attend.
