Congratulations to Andre Matlock and Alex Press, who both filed their dissertations in Spring and Summer respectively.
Andre’s dissertation, “Time and Experience in Cicero’s Ethical Dialogues,” was jointly supervised by Professors David Blank and Francesca Martelli. This Spring he also published his first article, “Relationality, Fidelity, and the Event in Sappho,” in Classical Antiquity (39.1) in April of this year.
Alex wrote his dissertation, “Justice Purity Piety: A Reading of Porphyry’s On Abstinence from Ensouled Beings,” under the supervision of David Blank. Alex plans to continue thinking and writing about the bonds between human and nonhuman animals.
Congratulations, Andre and Alex!
