Jesse Weiner’s (Ph.D., M.A, University of California, Irvine; B.A., New College of Florida) research and teaching interests encompass Greek and Latin epic poetry, drama, and, especially, the many ways in which classical antiquity continues to inform modernity.
Earlier this month, he published the essay “Mutable Monuments and Mutable Memories in Lucan’s Bellum Civile and the Former Yugoslavia” in Landscapes of War in Greek and Roman Literature (Bloomsbury Academic).
Weiner has worked as a Latin consultant for Hollywood films and as a scholar with the Ancient Greeks/Modern Lives program. He previously taught classics at Illinois Wesleyan University, California State University Long Beach, and the University of California, Irvine.
