Massimo Cè is currently finishing his dissertation on ancient Homeric translation at Harvard University before relocating to Munich, Germany, where he will be the Swiss Academy postdoctoral fellow at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae (2020–). At Harvard, Massimo not only served as the sole instructor for a wide range of language and literature courses, including a junior seminar on the ancient and modern reception of Greco-Roman literature (2017–2018), but also co-convened Postclassicisms, a graduate research and discussion workshop focused on the dynamics of canon formation and the figuration of literary secondariness in the classical tradition (2016–2018). Massimo’s publications include book chapters on Ezra Pound’s translation of the Homeric Nekuia (published with Bloomsbury Academic) and the generic affiliations of the Ilias Latina (forthcoming with Brill), as well as an article on the secondary incipit of the Odyssey (forthcoming in Classical Philology).
