The Executive Council of 2012-2013


With the new academic Year having begun, and the Classics Club having once again reconvened, it is time that you, our Members, get to know the finer character traits of the new Executive council. Here are our brief (and scholastic) biographies:

President – Owen Phillips

“I am a fourth-year Classics and Anthropology major. As an anthropological archaeologist, I am interested in urbanization and urbanism. As a classicist, I am primarily interested in: urban history; Greek and Roman public architecture; Roman historical art; portraiture; the ancient economy; and ancient education.”

Vice-President – Emily Lamond

“I am a fourth-year Classics and Anthropology major. My main interests are bioarchaeology, Classical epigraphy, and Greek and Latin literature.”

Secretary – Stephanie Strain

“I am a fourth-year Classics and English major. My favourite areas of study in Classics are Greek and Roman art and archaeology, Greek comic theatre, poetry, and epic.”

Treasurer – Katherine Joun

“I am a third-year Classics major. I find all periods of Classical history fascinating, especially Greco-Roman Egypt. My particular interests are the languages of Greece and Rome and those with which they interacted, particularly Egyptian Demotic.”

Upper-Year Representative – Brendan Palangio

“I am a third-year Classics major with a minor in Music. My main interests lie with literature, elegiac and lyric poetry, and with the social, cultural, intellectual, and political histories of the Hellenistic era and Late Antiquity.”

Second-Year Representative – Jenna Lemay

“I am a second-year Classics major. I am mainly interested in the religious aspects of Greek and Roman history, particularly Greek mythology. I am also interested in history in general, in how people lived and in relating their lives to our own.”

So there you have it – the academic quirks and zones of interests of your Exec. However, don’t let our present specificity lead you astray; at heart, we are all Classicists, and we are all terribly, terribly inflicted with philhellenism+philoromanism.
