Speaker information

Professor Stephen Hinds, University of Washington, Seattle, Professor Stephen Hinds is one of the most internationally distinguished specialists in Latin poetry. He is Professor of Classics and Lockwood Professor of the Humanities at the University of Washington, Seattle.

The UCL Department of Greek and Latin regularly hosts a public lecture named in honour of its most celebrated professor (and poet) A. E. Housman and delivered by a scholar of international distinction. Our guest speaker this year is Professor Stephen Hinds, who will explore Claudian’s Rape of Proserpine, a late antique epic that belongs to the Ovidian tradition while also straddling East and West, antiquity and the modern world.

The lecture will be followed by a reception from 7-8pm, to be held across the foyer of the Anatomy Building, in the Gavin de Beer lecture theatre.
