Sidney Christman is pursuing her doctorate in classical philology at the University of Virginia. Her primary research interests are Greek epic and archaic poetry, particularly Homer, the Homeric Hymns, and Sappho. She received her B.A. in Classics with a History minor from Loyola University Maryland in 2013 and an M.A. in Greek from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2015. Having earned an M.A. in Classics from the University of Virginia in 2018, she is now in the preliminary stages of work on her dissertation, which will examine the role of divine emotions in the Homeric Hymns. Sidney will be spending the 2019-2020 academic year at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, Greece, which will allow her the opportunity to study the history and archaeology of ancient Greece in situ.
