Academic Year Adjunct Lecturer

Andres Matlock completed a BA in Classical Languages and Comparative Literature at Hamilton College and a PhD in Classics at UCLA, for which his dissertation examined constructions of time and experience in Cicero’s philosophical writing during Julius Caesar’s dictatorship. He taught at Loyola Marymount University before coming to Santa Clara, where he is teaching advanced reading courses in Latin and Greek, a course in translation on the influences of Roman literature and thought, as well as a C&I sequence on “Ancient Spaces” that compares the cultures of ancient Greece, China, and Rome. His research ranges widely over ancient and modern approaches to philosophical topics, especially time, nature, and change. He has recently published on the poetry of Sappho (“Relationality, Fidelity, and the Event in Sappho,” Classical Antiquity 39.1) and the role of solitude in Cicero’s philosophy (“The Solitude of a Lifetime in Cicero’s de Finibus 5,” in Rafal Matuszewski, ed., Being Alone in Antiquity: Ancient Ideas and Experiences of Misanthropy, Isolation and Solitude, De Gruyter), and has forthcoming articles that deal with his growing interest in ecology and philosophy.
