Dr. Easton specializes in Roman social history, Latin language and literature, and Latin epigraphy, and he also maintains a passion for teaching courses in Greek history and language. One of the most rewarding parts of his pedagogy is helping students of all disciplines learn to take an interdisciplinary approach to the rich variety of evidence from the Classical World. 

This year he will be teaching Greek and Roman history and Classical Mythology. 

Dr. Easton holds a PhD in Classics from the University of Toronto and MAs in Classics from the University of Kansas and in History from Northwest Missouri State University. Before coming to UTM, he was a Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics at Southwestern University (Texas) and Lecturer in Classics at the University of Toronto St. George, and he held the Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Fellowship in Classics at Washington and Lee University (Virginia). He has also conducted research at the American Academy in Rome and at the British School at Rome, as well as participated in archaeological excavations in Pompeii.
