Barbara McManus, a professor of classics at the College of New Rochelle, will speak at Hamilton College on Monday, March 10 at 4:15 p.m. in Dwight Lounge of the Bristol Campus Center. Her lecture, "Crossing The Boundaries Of Gender: Vergil's Aeneid and Augustan Rome," is free and open to the public.

McManus received her M.A. and Ph.D from Harvard. She is the author of Classics and Feminism: Gendering the Classics, and a co-author of Half Humankind: Contexts and Texts of the Controversy about Women in England, 1540-1640. She is also a contributing writer for several anthologies, and has written for The Classical World, Helios and Women's Studies Quarterly. Her lecture will include discussion on treatment of the powerful figures of Dido, Cleopatra, and Livia.
