Amy Koenig.
Assistant Professor of Classics Amy Koenig was recently invited to participate in a visiting scholars’ panel at the 26th Annual SUNY Oneonta Undergraduate Philosophy Conference.
The theme of the event was “Which Ancients, Whose Justice?: The Value of the Humanities and the Future of the Classics.”

The session featured conversation among several scholars of classical studies concerning the role of philosophy in higher education and ways classicists are addressing issues related to the racist and colonialist roots of the discipline.

Earlier this year, Koenig presented a virtual talk titled “Mea lingua Christus: Muteness, Speech, and Agency in Prudentius’ Peristephanon 10” at the annual meeting of the Society for Classical Studies. She argued that in this poem, a Christian martyr narrative from the fourth century CE, muteness paradoxically symbolizes a liberation from the limitations of the voice, and the miraculous regaining of speech conversely represents a surrender to external divine control.
