Tyson Sukava is an assistant professor of Classics.  His general research interests cluster around the intellectual history of ancient Greece and Rome, with a primary focus on Greek medicine and science.  His current projects examine the channels for exchanging ideas between so-called expert groups and the general public and how these ideas were variously received and integrated.  His research therefore extends to other genres, including especially Greek drama and lyric poetry.

In the 2017/2018 academic year, Professor Sukava is teaching courses on the Latin and Greek languages, as well as two literature and culture in translation courses: Gods, Heroes, and Monsters (Fall) and Society and Spectacle in Ancient Greece and Rome (Spring).
