Micah Young Myers
Visiting Assistant Professor
Micah Myers is a visiting assistant professor at Indiana University, Bloomington and has accepted a tenure-track offer as Assistant Professor of Classics at Kenyon College. His research and teaching interests focus on Latin literature and culture, investigating the intersection between Latin literature, geography and ethnography. His current book project, which has the working title The Frontiers of the Empire and the Edges of the World in the Augustan Poetic Imaginary, explores literary representations of the relationship between Rome and distant places in Gallus, Horace, Propertius and Tibullus. His research is intended to deepen understanding of the significance of geography and ethnography in Augustan literature, and to contribute to the larger dialogue about Roman conceptions of culture and space.
