The department will welcome two new Visiting Assistant Professors in Fall 2019, Troy Samuels and Bill Beck. Troy (University of Michigan Ph.D. 2019), who will be our Schrader Visiting Assistant Professor in Classical Archaeology, specializes in Roman Art and Archaeology, and wrote his dissertation “Recovering rural non-elites: Commoner landscapes and non-elite agency in the Roman middle Republic” under Nicola Terrenato. Bill Beck (University of Pennsylvania Ph.D. 2019), brings to us broad expertise in Greek Literature and Culture, with specialized knowledge of Homeric Epic. Bill wrote his dissertation The Narrative of the Iliad: Time, Space, and Story under Sheila Murnaghan, and has an ambitous project under way to translate the ancient scholia to Homer’s Iliad.
