Book imageProfessor Richlin's most famous book is The Garden of Priapus: Sexuality and Aggression in Roman Humor (Oxford University Press 1992), and she has published widely; her work is relevant to many departments and disciplines. Professor Richlin is the speaker of choice for USM's Student Classics Club. Additionally, her visit is in part a celebration of humanities at USM and the new online Liberal Studies-Humanities major -  a collaboration of Outreach and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences, and designed by faculty in the Departments of English, History, and Philosophy, and the Classics Program.

Sponsors of Richlin's visit include the Classics Program, the Classics  
Club, the English Department, the History and Political Science  
Department, the Liberal Studies-Humanities Program, the Theater  
Department, and the Women and Gender Studies Program.
