Assistant Teaching Professor
Office: Humanities Center 331
Aaron Palmore received his B.A. in Classics and Medieval Studies from Ohio Wesleyan University and his Ph.D. in Classics from The Ohio State University. In between these two degrees, he taught high school Latin, worked in non-profit development and advocacy, and completed the Classics post-baccalaureate program at Georgetown University.
Dr. Palmore's research interests are in Latin literature and language, with a special focus on lyric and elegiac poetry. His primary focus is on the interaction between form and meaning in Horace's final lyric collection, Odes 4. Other projects focus on Hellenistic Greek poetry and its reception in Rome, Geoffrey of Monmouth's Vita Merlini, and the 18th-century Latin poet Christian Wedsted.
At Loyola, Dr. Palmore's primary teaching responsibilities are in Latin, Greek, and mythology.
