Please join us for a lunchtime discussion with Jacobo Myerston, Assistant Professor of Literature.
Jacobo Myerston received his PhD from the Program in the Ancient Mediterranean World at the University of Chicago after obtaining an MA in Comparative Religion and Classics from the University of Tubingen, Germany. Jacobo is interested in questions related to literary globalization in the ancient world, and his research addresses the relationship between literatures and hermeneutics of Ancient Greece and Mesopotamia. He is also interested in the reception of Ancient Mediterranean literature by Latin American writers and the digital humanities.
The conversation with Jacobo Myerston will be moderated by Monte Johnson, Associate Professor of Philosophy.
This event is part of an ongoing series of Monday lunches made possible by a gift from Gay Lester. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP.
