Classics Junior Timothy Grayson Awarded CAMWS Scholarship

Mon, April 20, 2009

Only six of these scholarships are awarded each year, to students drawn from a pool of candidates nominated by Classicists from around the country, excepting the Northeast and the West Coast. With this award, Timothy joins the stalwart ranks of past UT Classics majors and Stewart Scholars Christian Skelton (in 2007) and Jason Nethercut (in 2003).

On Friday, April 17th, attendees at the Eta Sigma Phi 2009 Undergraduate Research Symposium were able to hear Timothy's presentation on the topic of "Homer, Dylan, and Beyond: Understanding Warfare through Music."

Two other presentations included:

Dhananjay Jagannathan, Classics, Philosophy, and Plan II Senior, on "Protagoras and Education for Citizenship"

and

David Safranek, Ancient History and Classical Civilization and Spanish Senior on "Alexander the Great and Persian Kingship"
