Congratulations to Pamela Johnston!

Congratulations to Pamela Johnston, Associate Professor of History, who has been selected to participate in the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC) seminar on Hellenic Studies. CIC states, “Through close readings and discussions of translated Greek poetry, history, and philosophy, the seminar will explore what it means to be human. The organizing principle will be the study of a model of humanity, the heroes (hero), as it can be reconstructed by way of textual evidence attesting to myths and rituals from throughout the ancient Greek-speaking world. Beginning with the Homeric poems, the seminar also will engage with works of Sappho, Herodotus, Hesiod, Aeschylus, Sophocles, Euripides, and Plato, providing participants who teach in a variety of disciplines with approaches to integrate the literature of ancient Greece into a wide range of courses.” Pamela will attend the seminar at the Center for Hellenic Studies of Harvard University in July. Please join me in congratulating Pam!
