John started in the Classics department at Drew University in 1998. His research interests involve Roman history and archaeology. The current project springs out of work he did way back in the 90s for his dissertation, enhancing and adding to it with new digital tools. John’s history with technology is long and checkered. As a grad student he helped program HyperCard tools for a large undergraduate class in Roman Civ, and one of his early research projects involved creating a database of Latin vocabulary in elementary textbooks. Recently he has been trying to insert more and more digital tools and approaches into his classes.
