Bronwen heads south Posted on April 30th, 2007 by

At the end of the academic year, Bronwen will be leaving us to take up a tenure-track position at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. Vanderbilt University. She joins a large and growing classics department that was looking for a Hellenist “whose research explores relationships with Roman and broader Mediterranean culture as a whole”, someone who could take a leading role in expanding the introductory Greek program and foster interdisciplinary connections with other departments. In short, Bronwen is the perfect person for this position! So I have to break into a men…de construction: on the one hand, I am very sad that Bronwen will be leaving us and will miss her energy, dedication and brilliance, but on the other hand am simply thrilled that she has been appointed to this exciting position. We officially declare Bronwen a proxenos of Gustavus Adolphus College, and look forward to sending our Gustavus graduates to Vanderbilt’s well-funded classics M.A. program!
