Curriculum Vitae (pdf)
Pramit Chaudhuri received his B.A. (Hons.) in classical literature and philosophy (Literae Humaniores) from Balliol College, Oxford; an M.A. in the history of art from the Courtauld Institute; and a Ph.D. in classics and comparative literature from Yale University. He specializes in the Latin poetry of the early Roman empire, set within a broader study of classical epic and tragedy. His current work explores literary depictions of "theomachy" (conflicts between humans and gods) and their mediation of issues such as religious conflict, philosophical iconoclasm, political struggle, and poetic rivalry. Chaudhuri also studies the reception of classical antiquity in early modern epic and tragedy and in High Renaissance art.
