Jordan Carrick

Jordan received her BA in Greek and Roman Studies from Vassar College in 2018. Her senior undergraduate thesis, “Taking the Poet’s Part: Sulpicia’s Elegy,” explored how Sulpicia’s six shorter poems ([Tib] 3.13-18) use and complicate the gendered conventions of elegy. Her research interests include Roman elegy and comedy, poetics, and the representations and treatment of marginalized identities in both ancient texts and their modern reception. She entered the PhD program at Penn in 2019.
