Stephanie McCarter has taught at Sewanee since 2008. She received a BA (2000) in Classics and English from the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and an MA (2002) and PhD (2007) in Classics from the University of Virginia. At Sewanee she teaches Greek and Latin courses at all levels as well as courses in translation, and she is active in Sewanee’s interdisciplinary Humanities program. 

Outside of the classroom, her current major interest is in literary translation. She has published verse translations of Horace's Epodes and Odes (University of Oklahoma Press, 2020) and Ovid's Metamorphoses (Penguin, 2022), and she is currently at work on a new translation of Catullus. Her academic research centers on the Latin poetry of the late Republic and early Roman Empire.

Professor McCarter additionally finds great value and enjoyment in writing for non-academic audiences and has had essays appear on Classical topics in venues such as EidolonLiterary Hub, Electric Literature, and The Washington Post.
