Marianne Hopman, Associate Professor of Classics at Northwestern University (Ph.D. Harvard University and Paris Sorbonne) specializes in archaic and classical Greek poetry. Her first book, Scylla: Myth, Metaphor, Paradox, investigates the relations between metaphors and mythical imagination in Greek and Roman antiquity (Cambridge University Press, 2012). She has also published articles on Homer, Athenian tragedy, and Greek hymns, and co-edited the volume Choral Mediations in Greek Tragedy (Cambridge University Press, 2013). She is the director of the graduate Classics Cluster and of the French Interdisciplinary Group. Honors and fellowships include the 2005 graduate John J. Winkler Memorial Prize, a 2009 grant from the Loeb Classical Library Foundation, and a 2013-2015 AT&T Research Fellowship. In early 2015, Professor Hopman was named a Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Palmes Académiques by the French Ministry of Culture. At Northwestern Professor Hopman teaches undergraduate and graduate courses on Greek and Roman poetry, Greek myths, and the reception of the Classical tradition.
