Professional Summary

Caitlin Hines (PhD, University of Toronto 2018) is a philologist specializing in Latin and Greek poetry, particularly the works of Vergil and Ovid, and is Affiliate Faculty in the Department of Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. Her research interests include intertextuality, metapoetics, and the sexual and fertility politics of the Augustan age. Her current book project, Rome's Visceral Reactions: Politics and Poetics in Flesh and Blood, examines the transformation of the Latin word viscera into political and reproductive metaphors during crisis moments in Roman history. She has published on intertextual blossoms in Vergil's Georgics, acoustic techniques in archaic Greek ekphrasis, and gestational time in Ovidian mythography; she has co-authored, with Prof. T.H.M. Gellar-Goad, two chapters on antiracist pedagogy in Classics, and with her brother, Prof. Zachary Hines, a first edition, commentary, and translation of a neo-Latin oration from 15th century Italy. She brings a background in dance and performance to collaborations with UC's College Conservatory of Music, including original choreography for the Greek chorus in a production of Euripides' Trojan Women in Fall 2022.
