Luke Parker

Luke earned a BA in Philosophy and Greek language and literature from Vassar College in 2008, and an MA from the University of Chicago in 2013.  A joint student in Classics and the Committee on Social Thought, he is currently working on the poetics of early Greek philosophy, Heraclitus in particular.  He has an ongoing interest in ancient Greek poetry and poetics together with their reception in modern literature and philosophy, especially as these pertain to thinking about "nature."

Konrad Weeda

I am currently writing a dissertation titled "Poetic Forms of Life: Reading Horace and his Virgil," in which I seek to describe the salient features of a conceptual space that we can call "form of life" in the poetry of Virgil and Horace. Broadly, I am interested in literary history and poetics. Besides Virgil and Horace, authors of interest include Theocritus, Catullus, Nietzsche, and Giorgio Agamben.

Natalie Trevino

Natalie Trevino is a fourth year Ph.D. student in the Program for Classical Languages and Literatures after receiving her B.A. in Classics from Trinity University in 2011. The topics of her own research include Homeric Poetry and Greek religion, especially the intersection of the two. The first of these has allowed her to contribute to the explanatory notes for books 13-24 following Edward McCrorie’s new translation of the Iliad.
