Dr. Stephanie Quinn is a retired Associate Professor of Classical Studies in the Languages, Philosophy, Religion, and Culture Department. She has taught the full range of classical studies courses, including ancient Greek and Roman history, literature in translation, etymology, as well as courses in gender and sport studies. She especially enjoys team teaching and has worked with colleagues in English on tragedy in ancient Greece and the English and Spanish Renaissance; in French, on the Antigone tradition in ancient Greece, modern France and contemporary Africa; in Biology on emerging research in ancient climate studies. She specializes in studies on the ancient Roman epic poet Vergil, author of The Aeneid and other works. Her most recent publication is The Quarrel Between Poetry and Philosophy (Routledge 2020), with colleagues John Burns, Matthew Caleb Flamm, and William Gahan. Previously she published Why Vergil? A Collection of Interpretations (Bolchazy-Carducci 2000), which is an annotated collection of scholarly and literary interpretations of Vergil’s works, with extensive introduction and conclusion. That text remains a standard reference guide. She has made several conference presentations, including recently in January 2019 at the annual Society for Classical Studies Conference, on Vergil and the 20th-century Austrian novelist Hermann Broch, regarding both authors’ interpretations of art and empire.
