Austin Chapman is a philology PhD student currently writing a dissertation on reading order and proximities in the Attic Nights of Aulus Gellius. Other classics-related interests include compilatory literature in Greece and Rome of the Imperial period, ancient Greek and Roman education, and Greek lyric poetry.
- B. A. in History, Furman University, Greenville, SC, 2005 (Degree in History, Concentration in Classics.).
My research interests focus on the Attic Nights of Aulus Gellius, but I am interested more broadly in methods of reading and learning in compilatory literature of the imperial period in Greece and Rome.
My teaching interests involve creating a heavily participatory atmosphere in Greek and Latin language classes, where students practice and create knowledge in interactive situations in class and review their knowledge in private at home.
