Dr. M. Catherine Bolton, PhD
Associate Professor, Classics, Modern Languages and Linguistics
My current and past research is on the Latin elegiac poet Ovid, specifically his series of letters written by abandoned heroines called the Heroides. From strictly poetic interpretations of the letters, I have moved to investigating issues of gender and space in the single letters of the Heroides.
I have taught at Concordia University since 1989. I held the position of Associate Dean, Student Academic Services, Faculty of Arts and Science, for seven years. I am currently the Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning. I have held this appointment since 2013.
