We are delighted to announce that Professor David H. J. Larmour has joined the Department of Classics, Ancient History and Archaeology at Birmingham as Honorary Professor. He is Paul Whitfield Horn Professor and Head of Classics at Texas Tech University, and editor of The American Journal of Philology, the oldest classical journal in North America.
This cements the already-lively research links between Texas Tech and Birmingham, and after a successful inaugural workshop co-organised by Professor Larmour ('Back to the Future: A Workshop on Beginnings', June 2013), we look forward to annual events strengthening our transatlantic collaboration. Professor Larmour has published widely on Greek and Latin literature, on critical theory, and Russian literature and his expertise adds to to the Birmingham emphasis on interdisciplinarity within the Humanities. We warmly welcome him to Birmingham.
