Student research in Classical Studies
Thanks to the generous donors who help support our department, we were able to support these three students to travel to present their research this year.
Hank Lanphier (Classics Post-Baccalaureate '18) presented "Didactic Medea: Problems and Possibilities in Using Medea to Study Athenian Gender Roles in the Classroom" at the annual meeting of The Classical Association of the Middle West and South, based on his reflections on teaching Greek history to middle school students.
Keegan Sims (Classical Civ '18) worked on a project on agriculture in the Greek archaic period for an upper-level seminar. He adapted his paper, "Agriculture and Debt-Slavery in Archaic Greece" for presentation at the Seventh Annual Tennessee Undergraduate Classics Research Conference in February.
Stephanie Wong (BA-Classics '18) researched Roman graffiti and ancient literacy as a Provost Fellow. She presented "Dominance through Permanence: Schoolboy Graffiti in the Greco-Roman World" at the annual meeting of The Classical Association of the Middle West and South in April.
