Jesse Weiner.

Associate Professor of Classics Jesse Weiner recently organized and chaired a panel at the Pacific Ancient and Modern Language Association (PAMLA) annual meeting in Portland, Ore.

He also presented “Prometheus and Promethean Problems in Dan Simmons’ Hyperion Cantos,” a paper in which he investigates issues of posthumanism and joins Greek and Roman mythology with the ethics surrounding speculative science and the creation and augmentation of life. 

Weiner was joined on the panel, titled “Prometheus in Film, Literature, and Visual Culture,” by his longtime collaborators Brett M. Rogers of the University of Puget Sound and Benjamin Eldon Stevens from Howard University. Weiner and Howard co-edited Frankenstein and Its Classics: The Modern Prometheus from Antiquity to Science Fiction, published by Bloomsbury Academic in 2018.
