Heather VincentProfessor Vincent is currently in her second year at Eckerd College. Prior to her arrival at Eckerd, she was an 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. Part of her work includes an investigation of gender and ethnic stereotypes in satire and satiric literature of the late first century through the third century CE.

Professor Vincent teaches several courses of interest to students considering a concentration in Women’s and Gender Studies. In CL 203H: Women and Gender in the Ancient World, students employ modern theoretical approaches to understand visual and literary representations of women in the Greco-Roman tradition. Her course titled Classical Mythology, CL 200H also gives particular emphasis to feminist approaches to the interpretation of myth. Some recent topical courses that have considered issues of gender and ethnicity include: CL 331H: Barbarians in the Ancient World, WT 2H: Classical Themes in Modern Film, and AT 25: Greek Tragedy in Contemporary Media.
