Timothy Wutrich

Timothy Wutrich is the author of the book Prometheus and Faust: The Promethean Revolt in Drama from Classical Antiquity to Goethe. At present he divides his scholarly interests into three spheres. He is interested in all aspects of ancient Greek and Roman drama (especially the relationship between Homer and Attic tragedy, and the rise, fall, and Nachleben of Latin drama), Vergil (especially the heroic tradition and the Aeneid), and the Classical Tradition (especially the reception of the Homeric hero in postclassical literature and the arts).

At CWRU, Dr. Wutrich has taught all levels of Latin, Greek Tragedy, Greek and Roman literature surveys, Greek and Roman civilization, and Greek and Latin elements (etymology). He also regularly teaches in the university’s SAGES program.

Timothy Wutrich’s scholarship and teaching interests also connect with his outreach activities. Each spring he organizes Vergil Week, a campus-wide celebration of the poetry, life, and times of Vergil, Rome’s greatest poet. Wutrich also has been involved with the American Philological Association’s Committee on Ancient Drama and Performance (CAMP) and has acted in a number of ancient plays, as well as in plays from the Classical Tradition.

Dr. Wutrich is associate director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities and a member of the Baker-Nord Center’s Steering Committee. In the Department of Classics, he is director of the classical tradition track and a member of the World Literature Steering Committee.
