Asa Olson


Visiting Assistant Professor in English

Generally, I teach and study English and European literature from the 16th and seventeenth centuries, although my research focuses on how ancient Latin and Greek texts are taught and imitated in early modern classrooms. I'm especially interested in the appeal of Ovid's poetry to students' psychological experiences and how this poetry disciplines and/or enables students to craft the gendered, professional, and political terms of their subjectivity.
