Artemis Brod is completing her dissertation on bodily incapacitation and religious experience among the orators of the second century CE. She has a degree in cultural Anthropology from Reed College and an MA in Classics from UC Irvine, where she wrote theses on the ironies of white appropriations of Hiphop music and Hermes’ strategic irony in the Homeric Hymn to Hermes, respectively. She is interested in the intersections of humor and religion, narrative strategies of religious experience, magic and religion, the Second Sophistic and, as ever, Homer. In addition to Greek and Latin language and freshmen writing courses, she has taught on ancient sport, mythology, and on the “figure of Helen” in Greek literature.
