Meet the Classics Faculty

At Knox, five full-time classicists are joined by faculty from other departments with specialized training in classical studies. This diversity, as well as the wide range of disciplines embraced under the aegis of classical studies, lends the program a special interdisciplinary character and builds bridges between classics and other areas of the Knox curriculum.
