Dr.Vincent has served on the Classics and Ancient Studies faculty since her arrival in 2006. Prior to her arrival at Eckerd, she held the position of Assistant Professor of Classics at Southern Illinois University in Carbondale, IL. Dr. Vincent's research focuses on Roman satire and ancient and modern humor theory. She is particularly interested in obscene and scatological tropes employed in ancient comedic literatures, or, in other words, all matters bawdy, boorish, and base. Course offerings are sure to please!


Some recent course offerings include:
CL 200H: Classical Mythology
CL 203H: Women & Gender in the Ancient World
CL 331H: Icon & Ideology in the Augustan Age
AS 301G: Ancient "Barbarians": Self & Other
AS 331H: Ancient Laughter: Text and Art

Ancient Greek and Latin languages are also offered at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels.

Life After Eckerd

Classics graduates often pursue, but are not limited to, careers in business, education, government, and the non-profit sector. The classics major is also excellent preparation for graduate school.
