Teaching

My teaching at Wesleyan focuses on the philosophy, literature, and history of the Ancient Greek and Roman world. I generally teach one course each semester that originates in the Department of Philosophy and one that originates in the College of Letters. Most of these courses are also cross-listed with the Department of Classical Studies.
