The Myth of Io in Ovid and Beyond: Voice, Sexuality, and Lamentation
View Polygence scholar page
The broad topic of Tatiana's project was Greek and Roman mythology, especially as told in Ovid's Metamorphoses. More specifically, She explored myths relating to gender and sexuality, and also interpretations of those myths in other cultures and time periods, especially artistic interpretations of various sorts including painting and theater. The myth that is at the center of this project is that of Io in Ovid and its rewritings and re-interpretations. Tatiana conducted all of her research in Latin, the original language in which Ovid wrote. She has also written her own translations of Ovid's Latin version of the myth.
Tatiana produced a high-quality podcast episode. In this podcast, she documents her research process, her analyses as well as her original translations. She will proceed to publish it on iTunes and on the Apple store so that it will be available for anyone to access it.
