At the end of the course, students should be able to have simple conversations in Latin and summarize brief extracts from the texts we have read in their own words.

INSTRUCTOR

Tina Chronopoulos

Tina Chronopoulos is a British-infused Greco-German transplant whose teaching and research interests range all over the Mediterranean and span more than a millennium, from Greco-Roman antiquity to the medieval period and beyond. Trained by old-school philologists (at Durham University in the north of England and at King's College, London), she enjoys deep dives into libraries and archives, as well as close readings of texts, contexts, and medieval manuscripts. In the classroom, she gets excited about speaking in Latin as much as possible and encouraging her students to read both the past and the present contextually whilst wearing the lenses of race, class, and gender.
