Our speaker is Professor Craig A. Williams from the University of Illinios, Urbana-Champaign.
Professor Williams is the author of Roman Homosexuality (Oxford University Press 1999; revised edition 2010), a commentary on Book 2 of Martial’s epigrams (Oxford University Press 2004), A Martial Reader (Bolchazy-Carducci 2011), Reading Roman Friendship (Cambridge University Press 2012), and numerous articles and reviews on Latin literature and Roman culture and their reception. Before coming to Illinois, Williams was on the faculty of Brooklyn College and the Graduate Center of CUNY for many years. He has also taught at the Freie Universität Berlin and Columbia University, and he has several times been a Fellow of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation at both the Humboldt-Universität and the Freie Universität in Berlin.
In his current book project, Williams explores how Native North American writers have used their knowledge of the languages, literatures, and cultures of ancient Greece and Rome in a wide range of texts from the 17th century until today.
