Celia works broadly across the Latin verse tradition, but with particular attention to the poetry of the late Republic and early Empire. She completed a DPhil at Trinity College, Oxford and served as the Interim Head of Classics at St Anne’s College, Oxford before finding her way back to the States, where she has taught at NYU, Fordham, UVa, and FSU. A native of coastal Maine, her time in Virginia and Florida has accustomed her to Southern climes, but she still can’t quite seem to get used to being called ma’am. Celia is currently at work on a book on Ovid’s Metamorphoses, but often engages in the virtuous procrastination of thinking about Senecan tragedy and Virgilian pseudepigrapha.
