David Wright is a PhD candidate in Classics at Rutgers University. He earned his BA in Classics in 2008 from the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, MA. After teaching Latin at all levels at the Tower Hill School in Wilmington, DE, he completed an MA degree in Classical Philology at the University of Arizona in the spring of 2012 during which time he wrote an master’s thesis on the language of piracy and banditry surrounding the Trojans in the Aeneid. David’s research interests include Latin poetry of the Augustan era and early empire, as well as environmental humanities and landscape studies. He is currently writing a dissertation on the literary and cultural symbolism of the Isthmus of Corinth. He has helped edit a Latin reader, Legends of Early Rome: Authentic Latin Prose for the beginning Student (Yale University Press, 2015), and has a forthcoming article on the figure of Anna Perenna in the Aeneid to appear in an edited volume entitled, Instability and Permanence: Uncovering Anna Perenna.
