Lisa Hughes

Research
As a classicist, Lisa’s primary interests are ancient drama in historical context, and the classical tradition in American culture, especially literature and film. Recent academic publications and presentations include women and war in Greek tragedy; and Greece as a site of comedy from ancient Rome to the contemporary American cinema. She teaches courses that reflect the enduring influence of the ancient Greeks, in classes as varied as The King James Bible, Myth and Movies, and Shakespeare’s Ovid. She continues to enjoy taking Colorado College students to Greece for courses on Homer, Greek drama, and Greek romanticism.
