Andrew M. McClellan

Lecturer in Classics and Humanities, San Diego State University

My research and teaching interests range widely across ancient and modern literature with a particular focus on the topic of violence (physical, rhetorical, metapoetic) in the arts and in the public sphere. I have published articles and book chapters on Homer's Iliad, Lucan's Civil War, Silius Italicus' Punica, Prudentius' Psychomachia, and Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. I have work forthcoming on Lil Wayne and the "poetics of cannibalism" in the journal New Literary History, and the fall of Jerusalem in Josephus' works in the Oxford Handbook of Josephus. My book, Abused Bodies in Roman Epic, was recently published by Cambridge University Press (2019).
