University of Michigan-Ann Arbor
Professor of Classical Studies
Ph.D. in Classical Studies, University of Cambridge, UK, 1980

Richard Janko is a Hellenist in the broadest sense, from the Aegean Bronze Age and Homer’s Iliad to the lost second book of Aristotle’s Poetics. He is currently reconstructing from a carbonized Herculaneum papyrus 16 meters in length a book about poetry by Vergil’s teacher Philodemus. During his Fulbright Award (Winter 2017) he will be studying the oldest surviving European book, the ‘Derveni papyrus’ in the Archaeological Museum of Thessaloniki, which, he holds, played a crucial role in the religious crisis in Athens that claimed the life of Socrates. He will be affiliated with the Aristotelian University of Thessaloniki, where he will offer a seminar on this fascinating text.
