Simone Oppen (Ph.D. '19) Appointed Lecturer in Classics at Dartmouth College

Simone Oppen has been appointed as a Lecturer in the Department of Classics at Dartmouth College from 2019 to 2021. Simone is thrilled to return to teaching Classical Mythology and Latin (among other courses) after years working on her PhD thesis, Comparative perspectives on Persian interactions with Greek sanctuaries during the Greco-Persian Wars (co-supervised by Elizabeth Irwin and John Ma, degree conferred in 2019). She is especially grateful for the support of the Columbia Classics faculty and larger community in getting her to this point and looks forward to growing as a teacher and scholar in Hanover!
