Lizzy Ten-Hove

PhD Candidate - Language and Literature

Lizzy received her B.A. in Classics and English Literature from McGill University in 2013, combining the two disciplines in an honors thesis titled "Adsum: Seneca and the Supernatural on the Elizabethan Stage." Her current research is on the theory and performance of tragedy in the Second Sophistic, and her interests encompass ancient drama and its reception more broadly. She is active in modern performances of ancient texts as an actor, translator, and director; some of her past projects include translating and performing a one-woman version of Homer's Iliad 1 (Freestanding Room, Jan. 2013), directing Sophocles' Philoktetes (Montréal Arts Interculturels, Feb. 2013), directing Aristophanes' Nerds for Stanford Classics in Theater and the Committee on Ancient and Modern Performance (May 2015, Jan. 2016), and co-directing Max Frisch's The Arsonists for the Committee on Ancient and Modern Performance (Jan. 2018).
