Raymond Kania
Visiting Faculty
Interdisciplinary Studies

I am a classicist whose research interests include bucolic poetry (especially Virgil’s Eclogues) and the relationship (in classical texts and others) between narrative structure and the visual imagination. I have taught many ancient Greek and Roman texts in translation and the original languages, as well as courses on such topics as rhetoric, ancient Greek drama and poetics, and the philosophy of religion.
