Bio:

Christina’s doctoral research explores the intersection of Greek and Latin literature and, in particular, the use of erotic and political language for the expression of literary polemics. During her studies at U.Va., Christina has taught numerous classes and directed the virtual Latin Summer Language Institute twice. She was the 2020-21 Ph.D. Plus intern at the Center for Teaching Excellence, where she participated in many of the Center’s initiatives and developed workshops on Anti-Racist Pedagogy, Learning Theories, and Motivation. Christina has been awarded a Society of Fellows Dissertation Completion Fellowship for the academic year 2021-22, and she received the 2020-21 Class of 1985 Fellowship for Creative Teaching.
