Congratulations to Justin Haynes

Congratulations to Justin Haynes (PhD 2014) who has been appointed a full-time lecturer in the Department of Classics at UCLA for the academic year 2014-15. During his appointment, he is teaching courses on Postclassical Latin literature for UCLA’s new Mellon post-baccalaureate program in Postclassical Latin. Since his thesis was on twelfth-century epic, he is particularly excited to be teaching a Latin reading course in the spring on Alan of Lille’s Anticlaudianus and Walter of Châtillon’s Alexandreis–with selections from their medieval commentaries. In the fall, he designed and taught a survey course covering Postclassical Latin literature from the fifth to the eighteenth century. He is also teaching undergraduate classes in English translation on the reception of Classical Latin literature in later Western European literature, including courses on the reception of Ovid and on the classical heroic journey to the underworld.
