Dr Charlie Kerrigan

Research Fellow

I completed a BA in History and Latin here in TCD, and then spent a year at Exeter College, Oxford, before returning to Trinity to write a PhD on Virgil’s Georgics and its reception in the British empire (2018). I teach Latin language and literature in the Department, specializing in Virgil and his reception in various historical contexts, and my first book, Virgil’s Map: Geography, Empire and the Georgics, was published by Bloomsbury in 2020. My current research interests centre on Latin as a language of ordinary people; you can read my thoughts on the subject in Confabulations, part of TCD’s Living Latin project.

Selected Publications

  • Virgil’s Map: Geography, Empire and the Georgics (Bloomsbury Academic, 2020)
  • ‘Environment and Empire: Georgic Through Time’, forthcoming in P. Bullard (ed.), A History of English Georgic Writing (Cambridge University Press).
