Dr. Susanna Braund is a Canada Research Chair, Tier I, in Latin Poetry and its Reception and a Professor in the Department of Classical, Near Eastern and Religious Studies at UBC. She previously taught at the universities of Exeter, Bristol and London and at Yale and Stanford Universities. Her Canada Research Chair project is a collaborative project on the reception of Latin Poetry as measured through translation history which will build on her work on the translation history of Virgil (in Russian) and of Lucan and Seneca’s tragedies. She is specifically interested in how the translation history of different authors into different European languages (English, French, Italian, Russian, Spanish, German, Dutch) reflects trends in wider intellectual history. Dr. Braund’s most recent project is A Companion to Persius and Juvenal (Blackwell Companions to the Ancient World) with co-editor Josiah Osgood (November 2012). Her books currently in preparation include translations of Seneca’s Oedipus, Agamemnon and Phoenissae for the Chicago Seneca Project and a companion to Seneca’s Oedipus (Bloomsbury). She has several essays forthcoming on the reception of classical literature. In February 2012 Dr. Braund hosted the Wall Scholars Café, What gets lost in translation? She was appointed chair of task force on translations by the American Philological Association VP Research and was co-chair of the Steering Committee of the Women’s Classical Caucus.
