Prof. JeanAnn Dabb teaches ancient
art history at the University of Mary
Washington and has been tireless over
the years in mentoring Classics students
who wish to pursue careers in ancient art.
She recently joined with Classics to design
a course, cross-listed between the two
disciplines, on the art and archaeology of
ancient Egypt and the Near East. Finally,
she is such an ardent admirer of things
ancient that she herself designs and creates
mosaics inspired by the Romans.
Dr. Federico Schneider, Associate
Professor of Italian at the University of
Mary Washington and a “true friend”
of Classics, not only regularly mentors
Classics students, but he also offers courses
that explore the Classical tradition within
Italian literature, including one on Dante’s
Divine Comedy and another on the
afterlife in the Classical and Italian literary
traditions. Dr. Schneider has worked on
the Classical tradition and its pedagogy,
presented his work at a conference held
by the Classical Association of the Middle
West and South, and published it in the
journal College Teaching.
