Research Interests: 

Latin literature, conceptual history, literature and philosophy


Andrew Horne works on the history of moral and political ideas. His dissertation, “Making Freedom in Cicero and Horace,” reconstructed opposing theoretical approaches to libertas. Forthcoming publications focus on genre theory in Greek wisdom literature and theories of natural law and sovereignty in Virgil’s Georgics. Current projects examine Horace’s aesthetics and Aristotle’s political philosophy.

Andrew was a Rome Prize fellow in 2016-17. Teaching assignments at the University of Chicago included instructorships in Accelerated Latin and Accelerated Greek, as well as on the Athens study abroad program. His undergraduate degree is from Brown (2011).
