Adam Serfass arrived at Kenyon in 2002, and, for his first three years at the college, was jointly appointed in the Department of Classics and the Integrated Program in Humane Studies (IPHS). Serfass now teaches full-time in Classics, and offers courses in Greek and Latin as well as in ancient history. His research focuses on the diffusion of Christianity in late antiquity, especially in Italy and Egypt. In 2005, Serfass was awarded a Whiting Teaching Fellowship and in 2007, he received Kenyon's Junior Trustee Award for Teaching Excellence.
