Western Dream Time's first post

Postby Western Dream Time » Tue Apr 29, 2014 7:53 pm

Hello, I'm Elizabeth Burns, from Buffalo, New York. I am a doctoral candidate at the University at Buffalo in American History with studies in the Atlantic World and American Literary History. I studied Latin for two years at James Madison University under Carrington Petras and took a class in the translation of excerpts from Ovid's Metamorphoses taught by John Dugan at the University at Buffalo.
I have a blog at which I keep my Latin translations titled Western Dream Time at http://westerndreamtime.blogspot.com
My interest is in strengthening my translation skills to the purpose of studying the literature of British America and the Early Republic, and the Latin works of Nathaniel Hawthorne.
I would like to begin practicing the translation of Latin prose here in the summer after I have defended my dissertation on May 12.
I am interested in translating Livy's History of Rome, beginning with Book I.
Elizabeth I. Burns.
