Congratulations to Dr. Nathan Gilbert on his permanent appointment at Durham!

Congratulations to Dr. Nathan Gilbert, who will begin his permanent appointment as Lecturer in Latin Literature at Durham University this coming fall!

Dr. Gilbert earned his doctorate from our department in June 2015 with his dissertation, “Among Friends: Cicero and the Epicureans.” Following a 1-year stint as an Instructor here at UofT, Dr. Gilbert took up his present position as Junior Research Fellow in the Department of Classics at Durham, where he has continued his work on Cicero, Epicureanism, and ancient intellectual history. Two publications, forthcoming this year in Classical Philology and Classical Review, are the first fruits of his post-UofT life, and many others are sure to follow shortly.

Best of luck to Dr. Gilbert!
