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