Timothy Ponce serves as the Assistant Director of the First Year Writing Program and is a PhD Candidate in early modern English literature at the University of North Texas. His Dissertation project ­– titled “Synthesis as Making: Discriminative Diachronic Collaboration and the Renaissance Hero” – explores the adaptation and translation of heroic paradigms from antiquity to the early modern period, with specific attention given to the ways that authors adapt the heroic tradition so that it articulates with protestant notions of the heroic. His research interests include 16th and 17th century literature and politics, medieval romance, the Greco-Roman literary tradition, writing program administration, and curricular accreditation and compliance.
