"Why I Teach Race and Ethnicity in the Classical World"

"We Condone It by Our Silence: Confronting Classics' Complicity in White Supremacy"  


Before coming to Denison, I taught at Howard University and George Washington University in Washington, DC and at Union College in Schenectady, NY. My research focuses on the political, social, and cultural history of Classical Athens, ancient  theories of ethnicity, and the politics of identity (political, gendered, and ethno-racial). My primary teaching interests are in Greek and Latin language, race and ethnicity, women and gender, and various aspects of Greek and Roman history, especially involving active pedagogies like Reacting to the Past
