Thomas Goud has been the lone Classicist at the University of New Brunswick in Saint John since 1994. Born in Estevan, Saskatchewan, he completed his BA (Greek and Latin Honours) at the University of Calgary and his MA and PhD (Classics) at the University of Toronto.

Dr Goud has taught a wide range of courses in Greek and Roman literature, history, and myth as well Ancient Greek and Latin language. He has also been the co-director of the UNB Travel Study Programme in Rome since 2003 and has taught on site in Rome for over 20 years.

Dr Goud’s research interests lie in early Christian texts and history, in Roman history and historiography, and in Latin language and literature. His research has taken him full circle from an early interest in Biblical and early Christian studies to doctoral work on Latin historiography in the 1st century CE and now back to a primary focus on early Christian texts and history. He is currently co-editing a book on the parables of Jesus and is co-chair for the Synoptic Gospels sessions at the international meetings of the Society of Biblical Literature. He also is continuing his work on the problems of dating early Christian documents.
