 About the 2022 Latin Workshop Staff

 

Director: Daniel Squire

Daniel Squire is a sixth-year Ph.D. student in the AGRS Department at Berkeley; he previously attended Oxford University where he received his B.A. and M.St. in Classics. His dissertation research focuses on the scholia to Sophocles' Antigone. He has taught Latin at all levels at Berkeley and was an instructor for Part 2 of the Workshop in 2019 and Director in 2020 and 2021.

The Director of the Workshop has a dual role as administrative supervisor and instructor.  The Director is responsible for presenting new grammar to students during the first six weeks through lectures and office hours, as well as teaching one each of the Latin prose and poetry classes in the second half of the Workshop. 

 

Instructors for the First Half

Claire Healy is a fifth-year Ph.D. student in the AGRS Department at Berkeley. She completed her undergraduate studies at Georgetown University. Claire is interested in Greek and Roman literature and its interaction with the technologies of reading and writing. She was an instructor for the Latin workshop Part 1 in 2021 and has also taught courses in Greek and Roman literature and college writing at Berkeley.

Kyle Ralston is a sixth-year PhD student in the Comparative Literature Department at Berkeley. He previously received a B.A. in Classics from Harvard University and an M.St. in Roman History from Oxford. His dissertation research centers on the reception and influence of Roman history and Latin literature in 19th Century German historical thought.

The two instructors in the first half of the Workshop are responsible for the synchronous Zoom sessions, as well as office hours for general questions.  These sessions generally involve reviewing homework and drilling.  In addition, the first half instructors administer and grade quizzes.

 

Instructor for the Second Half

Liam Deihr is a third-year graduate student in the department of Ancient Greek & Roman Studies, with interests broadly including Greek poetry and psychoanalysis.

The fourth member of the Latin Workshop team teaches an additional Latin prose and Latin poetry course in the final four weeks of the Workshop.  These additional classes offer students in the Latin workshop the opportunity to select from a greater range of options for the second half reading courses.
