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 and the Metamorphoses.

I have taught at Concordia University since 1989 and have held the administrative positions of Associate Dean, Student Academic Affairs, Faculty of Arts and Science and Vice-Provost, Teaching and Learning, Office of the Provost.  I presently sit on the University Senate.
