STEPHEN HINDS is a Professor in the UW Department of Classics.  He is the author of The Metamorphosis of Persephone: Ovid and the Self-Conscious Muse (Cambridge 1987) and Allusion and Intertext: Dynamics of Appropriation in Roman Poetry (Cambridge 1998); many of his articles focus on the Latin poet Ovid (a pre-publication version of his latest, 'Ovid’s exile poetry and zombies', is on his page on academia.edu).  With Denis Feeney, he co-founded the now-completed Cambridge book series ‘Roman Literature and its Contexts’ (14 volumes between 1993 and 2016).  More recently he has extended his literary research to the Renaissance:  his current book project, with the working title Poetry across Languages: Studies in Transliteral and Transcultural Latin, in antiquity and since, explores cross-linguistic and intercultural relations of Latin literature both in antiquity and between antiquity and (early) modernity.  He grew up in Dublin, Ireland.  His B.A. is from Trinity College, Dublin, and his Ph.D. from Cambridge University; he has lived in the U.S. since 1986, first in Ann Arbor and since 1992 in Seattle. He has been a U.S. citizen since 2009. His spouse Catherine Connors is also a UW Professor of Classics who often teaches for Honors; they are the parents of two Roosevelt High School students, one current and one graduated.
