Teaching

My teaching at Wesleyan focuses on the philosophy, literature, and history of the Ancient Greek and Roman world.  I typically 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 cross-listed with the Department of Classical Studies.
