Amy Lather, assistant professor of classical languages, was recently awarded the Nathan and Julie Hatch Research Grant for Academic Excellence.

The award includes a week of study at Oxford University’s Harris Manchester College.  It also covers numerous expenses associated with the trip.

Lather plans to conduct research at the Oxfordshire Archives, where she will study ancient Greek aesthetics, perception and cognition.

“I am incredibly grateful for this unique opportunity as a junior faculty member to delve deeply into research and writing for a full week,” said Lather, who looks forward to meeting international scholars during her studies.

Lather joined Wake Forest’s faculty in 2016.  Recently, she also was a recipient of the University’s Innovative Teaching Award.
