Anna Chahoud holds the Chair of Latin (1870). She studied in Bologna, Pisa and Manchester, and lectured in Reading and Durham before coming to Ireland in 1999. She joined the Classics Department at Trinity College in 2006. She is a Fellow of Trinity College (FTCD[2007]) and Public Orator of the University of Dublin.

Research Interests

Main research interests are fragmentary Republican Latin, the transmission of Latin texts from antiquity to the early modern period, and the study of Latin registers and of the interaction between literary and spoken language. She is the author of C. Lucili Reliquiarum concordantiae (1998), of articles on Republican Latin, on Latin grammar and the grammatical tradition, and co-author, with E. Dickey, of Colloquial and Literary Latin (2010). She is writing the first English-language commentary of Lucilius for Cambridge, producing an edition of fragmentary Latin satire and popular verse for the Loeb Classical Library, and editing, with J. N. Adams and G. Pezzini, a Critical Guide to the Early Latin language (Cambridge). She is also responsible for research initiatives on Trinity College Latin manuscripts.
