Classical Studies' Erin Lam Receives Pair of Awards for Research Paper
Erin Lam, a post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Greek, Latin, and Classical Studies recently received two paper awards.
"Breaking Bodies: Materiality and Vulnerability in Heroides 12,” which was presented at the Society for Classical Studies 2022 Annual Meeting, received both the Women's Classical Caucus 2022-23 Best Pre-Ph.D. Award and the International Ovidian Society's Anderson 2022-23 Graduate Paper Prize.
Lam's research investigates how intersectional queer methodologies can be applied to ancient Classical texts in order to reexamine concepts such as gender, reproduction, identity, and subjectivity.
Lam's fellowship is sponsored by the Consortium for Faculty Diversity Fellowship. The consortium is committed to increasing the diversity of students, faculty members, and curricular offerings at liberal arts colleges with a particular focus on enhancing the diversity of faculty members and of applicants for faculty positions.
