Ilaria Marchesi

Degrees

PHD, 2002, Rutgers University; MA, 1999, Rutgers University; BA, 1994, Univ Florence


Bio

I graduated in Classics at the University of Florence, Italy, in 1994, and I pursued my graduate studies at Rutgers University, where I received my PhD in Classics in 2002. I am trained in both Greek and Latin philology, but my research interests focus on the Latin literature of the early empire. I have published articles on Horace, Petronius, and the classics tradition in the Middle Ages. For my work on Pliny I received a National Endowment for the Humanities Grant in 2005-6, and my book on intertextuality in the letters of Pliny the Younger, entitled The Art of Pliny's Letters, is published by Cambridge University Press.

At Hofstra, I am the Director of the Classics Program in the Department of Comparative Literature and Languages. I teach Latin (sometimes Greek) language at all levels, classical literature in translation, and often join the team of professors teaching the Fall sequence of Culture & Expression for the Honors College.
