Biography

Dr. Tyler T. Travillian earned a B.A. in Classics in 2005 from the University of Dallas before moving to Boston, where he earned both his M.A. in Latin in 2006 and Ph.D. in Classical Studies in 2011 from the Department of Classical Studies at Boston University.  From September 2010 to July 2011 he lived in Rome, Italy, where he held the Arthur C. Ross pre-doctoral fellowship in Ancient Studies at the American Academy in Rome.

Dr. Travillian’s primary areas of interest are Latin poetry and historiography of the late Roman Republic and early Empire, especially how questions of identity, such as gender, sexuality, race, and ethnicity are represented in Classical literature and how historians assert claims about truth and reality in their texts.  He also enjoys lyric poetry more broadly, translation studies, and Classical Greek philosophy, particularly Plato and Aristotle.
