Professor Emeritus of Classics
All of Clifford Weber's academic career was spent at Kenyon College. Until his retirement in 2003, he was the department's Latinist and accordingly taught most of the Latin courses offered by the department. Occasionally he taught intermediate Greek (Homer, Plato), and for lay audiences he offered courses in linguistics and in the history and literature of the Augustan age, where his interests as a scholar lie. Most of his publications have to do with Roman poets of the 1st century B.C., among whom Virgil has perennially been a primary interest. Believing that professors of the liberal arts need to demonstrate by example the worth of the liberal arts, Professor Weber was also engaged as an amateur in several other curricular realms, classical music being foremost among these. He currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
