 About the 2020 Latin Workshop Staff

 

Director: Daniel Squire

Daniel Squire is a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the Classics Department at Berkeley; he previously attended Oxford University where he received his B.A. and M.St. in Classics. His dissertation research focuses on the scholia to Sophocles' Antigone. He has taught Latin at all levels at Berkeley and last summer was an instructor for the second part of the Workshop.

The Director of the Workshop has a dual role as administrative supervisor and instructor.  In the classroom, the Director is responsible for presenting new grammar to students during the afternoon sessions of the first six weeks, as well as teaching one each of the Latin prose and poetry classes in the second half of the Workshop. 

 

Instructors for the First Half

Emily Mullin is a rising fourth-year in Classics with an interest in the spatiality and temporality of Roman lyric poetry. She earned a Bachelor's in Classics from Wellesley College in 2016 and a Master's in Classics from UC Berkeley in 2019.

Hamish White is a 5th year PhD student in Classics with an interest in ancient theatre, currently working on Euripides' Andromache. He earned an MA (Hons) in Classics from the University of St Andrews in 2015, and an MA in Classics from UC Berkeley in 2017.

The two instructors in the first half of the Workshop are responsible for the morning segment of the first 6 weeks, including office hours for general questions and a three-hour sectional review session over points of grammar presented the previous afternoon.  These sessions generally involve reviewing homework and drilling.  In addition, the first half instructors administer and grade quizzes and exams.

 

Instructor for the Second Half

Erin Lam is a 6th year PhD student in Classics, with a focus on Latin elegiac poetry. She earned her undergraduate degrees in Classical Languages and Molecular Environmental Biology at UC Berkeley, as well as an MPhil in Classics at King's College, Cambridge University. Her dissertation, titled "Authenticity, Performance, and Gender in Ovid’s Heroides: Toward a Queer Philology," explores textual and thematic authenticity in Ovid's Heroides through the lens of queer feminist theory.

The fourth member of the Latin Workshop team teaches an additional Latin prose and Latin poetry course in the final four weeks of the Workshop.  These additional classes offer students in the Latin workshop the opportunity to select from a greater range of options for the second half reading courses.
