bronwen wickkiserBKT Assistant Professor of Classics Bronwen Wickkiser participated in a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute in Athens, Greece on the topic Mortality: Facing Death in Ancient Greece.

As an NEH Scholar, Wickkiser will continue to develop and refine modules on mortality for her courses on the history, literature, and visual art of the ancient world.

Wickkiser also participated in a GLCA grant on soundscapes, directed by Department of Classics Chair Jeremy Hartnett ’96, which contextualizes and enriches her scholarship on architecture, performance, and music therapy in Greek healing sanctuaries.

Her article on Hellenistic poems about healing (“The Iamatika of the New Milan Posidippus”) was published in Classical Quarterly, and she gave talks at DePauw and IU Bloomington on music therapy, and at the annual meeting of the American Philological Association on therapies for infertility.
