Classics M.A. program alumnus Joseph Tipton recently defended his Ph.D. dissertation at the University of Pittsburgh. The title of his dissertation is: "An Aristocracy of Virtue: The Protagorean Background to the Periclean Funeral Speech in Thucydides."

Alumnus Wins Austrian Fellowship
Jonathan Meyer, a recent graduate of the M.A. program in Classics and Institute for Latin Studies, has received a fellowship from the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute for Neo-Latin Studies in Austria. During the academic year 2013/14, Jonathan will spend six months in Innsbruck, Austria to research 18th-century Neo-Latin novels related to the Habsburg Empire. We are delighted to celebrate both Jonathan's achievement and this new connection between the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute and our own here at the University of Kentucky.
