Owen Cramer

Research
Owen is a Hutchins-Chicago generalist with an Oberlin education, trained at the Arionera University of Texas as a Homerist (dissertation on “Odysseus in the Iliad”). He tries to keep up with developments in early Greek literature and history but has found himself lecturing for the Sunoikisis Medieval Latin course as well. He has published occasional reviews of books on Homer, postings to the now venerable Classics List online. An ongoing scholarly interest is the cultural dynamics (even crises) of the Athenian democracy of the late 5th century and the Roman republic of the first century, BCE.
