Ingo Gildenhard is Professor of Classics & the Classical Tradition and Director of the Centre for the Study of the Classical Tradition. His research interests range from Latin literature (with a special emphasis on the archaic period, Cicero, Virgil, and Ovid) to Roman culture (especially the political culture of the Roman republic) to the Classical Tradition and literary and social theory, including the theory and practice of translation. At the moment, he is working on Ovid & the Bible (a research project supported by a Major Research Fellowship from the Leverhulme Foundation), a co-authored volume entitled The Classical Tradition: Art, Literature, Thought (with Michael Silk, King’s College London, and Rosemary Barrow, Roehampton University), and a co-authored volume on Ovid's Metamorphoses (with Andrew Zissos, University of California at Irvine). He is also editing, together with Andrew Zissos, the proceedings of a workshop on myths of transformation (Durham 2008, supported by the Durham Institute of Advanced Study). He is keen to supervise graduate students, especially in the following areas: Latin literature of the republic and early principate, the classical tradition, translation, and the relevance of contemporary social and literary theory to the study of the ancient evidence.
