Steven Epley, associate professor in Samford University's Department of English, was on the program at the Association of Core Texts and Courses conference March 29-April 1 in Milwaukee, Wisc.               

Epley presented "The Most Lamentable Tragedy of Aristagoras: An Interdisciplinary Approach to Book Five of Herodotus' Histories." Epley showed how the particular section can been seen as a " sort of mini-Greek-tragedy." The approach could help students in core texts classes understand why Herodotus placed emphasis on the protagonist's strengths and weaknesses opposed to geopolitics, he noted.

Epley joined Samford's faculty in 1992.
