Professional Summary

Ted Boivin (he/him) is a 6th year PhD candidate in Classical Philology.

Ted's principal research interests are in Latin epic and historiography (especially Tacitus, Lucan, and Caesar), civil war reception in Latin literature, genre, narratology, and body metaphor. He holds a B.A. in Classics from Saint Anselm College in Manchester, NH.
