Dr. Tobias Myers is a specialist in Homeric poetry, with broader research and teaching interests in Ancient Greek and Latin literature, ancient magic and religion, and the history of ideas. He holds degrees in Classics from the University of Colorado at Boulder (BA), and Columbia University (MPhil, PhD). Prior to joining the faculty at Deree, Tobias taught for two years as a Lecturer at Columbia University and for seven years as Assistant and then Associate Professor at Connecticut College, where he received the John S. King Award for Excellence in Teaching in 2019.

Tobias is the author of a book, Homer’s Divine Audience: The Iliad’s Reception on Mount Olympus (Oxford University Press, 2019), and various articles. His current research explores Homeric conceptions of self-knowledge and also – in a mostly separate project – Homeric representations of time and the eternal.
