Rome and Beyond is a collaboration of scholars and resources.  Initial support for this project was funded by a grant from the Associated Colleges of the South.  We are in great debt to Kenneth Morrell for his initial leadership on this project.  Making this curriculum available to all through a web-based platform would not have been possible without the work of Alexandra Jester, our website designer.  


Dr. Lindsay Samson

Dr. Samson earned her Ph.D. from the University of Iowa in 2013.  Since that time, she has worked with Sunoikisis to facilitate workshops and create shared courses such as Ancient Medicine.  She taught Latin, Greek, and Ancient Civilizations courses at Agnes Scott College, Georgia State College, and Spelman College.  Dr. Samson has taken on a new challenge as a Middle School Latin teacher at the Lovett School in Atlanta Georgia.  She very much enjoys working with younger students to foster a life-long love of the Classics.  

Dr. Halford Haskell

Dr. Haskell, Professor Emeritus of Classics, taught Latin and Greek language and literature classes until his retirement in 2020. He believes in inspiring students to develop a passion for the study of ancient cultures and to respond in kind to those passions.  Since 1995, Dr. Haskell has participated in the virtual Classics program known as Sunoikisis, initially funded by the Mellon Foundation, whose projects include inter-institutional team-taught courses, an undergraduate research symposium, databases of various Classics resources, and the like.  Haskell received his PhD from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1981, his MA from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 1974, and his BA from Haverford College in 1972.
