Erin Brantmayer '18

Erin Brantmayer

Erin is a third year MA student in the AGRS program. Academically, she is interested in the study of death, through bioarchaeology and osteology, and how death ties into the studies of religion and ritual. Erin has archaeological experience both in the U.S., excavating at several paleolithic and historical sites on the East Coast, and abroad, as a volunteer at the Iron Age site of Tel Dor and as an assistant area supervisor at the Bronze Age site of Tel Kabri, both in Israel. She plans on returning to Israel for further excavations and shawarma. Additionally, she she has research interests and field experience in photogrammetry and 3D modeling.  When she's not thinking about trimming balks, Erin spends her time making Greek flashcards and hugging her dog. She's always down to talk, whether it's about the program, flannel shirts, or the problems with book-to-movie adaptations.

Anna Krohn '18

Anna Krohn

Anna is a third-year graduate student in the AGRS program. She works to join together her knowledge of the ancient world with digital methods, having a zealous belief in Open Access practices and the power of computing to make Classics available to more people. After working for the Perseus Digital Library at Tufts University she has experience in textual analysis and now at Brandeis she is leveling up her skills in digitizing physical objects. She has been swayed from her love of Etruscans by an equal love for Eteocretans, thanks to Dr. Koh's Mouliana Project. Mostly she resides in the Digital Humanities Lab and is excited to discuss potential digital projects, teach 3D scanning and modeling methods, or advise on digital resources.

Zachary Elliot '18

Zachary Elliott


Zach is a second year Master's student focusing primarily on Greek and Latin literature. The thread that has tied the disparate temporal and generic loci of his research is the exploration of the role of marginalized and liminal figures in literature and the ideological implications of those how those figures are presented. Currently, he spends his time working on a thesis about Telemachus, reading Latin and Greek, and encouraging graduate students to use Slack, which is the only tool that makes sense for team-wide communication. In his free time, Zach can be found around the department or on his back patio, willing to strike up conversation with whichever (unfortunate) soul happens to be there.
