Introduction to Latin Authors II: Women Writers and Orators

Birgitta Hoffmann

This is the second in an occasional series of one-off 2-hour workshops to meet some of the Roman authors and their work.

This term we will be looking at women writers and orators. Not a lot of their work survives, some like Sulpicia’s survived because it was later ascribed to male writers.

In the first part of the lecture, we will look at the surviving evidence, while in the second part we will be translating some of the poems ascribed to Sulpicia.

This course is suitable for students who have completed their Latin grammar training and are roughly at Latin A-level or beyond.

Please, bring a Latin dictionary or familiarise yourself with the free online dictionary at Latinitium.

Birgitta Hoffmann will be distributing a selection of texts by Sulpicia to prepare in advance of the class. Please, book before December 25th 10th, to give yourself sufficient preparation time.
