Adriana Vazquez, a fifth year graduate student, returns this summer from a tour of Classics departments in Brazilian universities, including the Universidade Federal do Paraná in Curitiba, the Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina in Florianópolis, and the Universidade Estadual Paulista, Araraquara campus. Being of Brazilian parentage, she was able to use her native fluency in Portuguese during her stayDuring her visits, she presented two original papers on Virgilian reception, entitled “Como é a vida de um poeta? Observações sobre as vidas dos poetas após Virgílio” (What is the life of a poet like? Observations on the lives of the poets after Virgil) and “Considerações sobre modelos diferentes de recepção clássica: questões de história da Língua Latina” (Considerations concerning varying models of Classical reception: issues of the history of the Latin language). The trip was facilitated by the generous support of the Antoinette Wills Endowed Scholarship, offered through the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Washington.
