  • Dr. Sean Riley's Seminar Description for A Brief History of Moral and Political Thought should be: This presentation aims to introduce the story of the development of moral and political theory in the West to teachers of all of levels of familiarity with the topic. It is of general interest to anyone wishing to understand our cultural inheritance and of particular interest to teachers who teach logic or rhetoric school courses in which students engage in moral and political discourse, often unaware of the origins of the ideas they find themselves espousing.
  • Dr. Christian Kopff's bio should read: E. Christian Kopff was educated at St. Paul’s School (Garden City NY), Haverford College and UNC, Chapel Hill (Ph. D., Classics). He has taught at the University of Colorado, Boulder, since 1973, and most currently as Associate Director of the Honors Program. He has edited a critical edition of the Greek text of Euripides’ Bacchae (Teubner, 1982) and published over 100 articles and reviews on scholarly, pedagogical and popular topics. A Fellow of the American Academy in Rome, he has received research grants from the NEH and CU’s Committee on Research. The Devil Knows Latin: Why America Needs the Classical Tradition (ISIBooks, 1999) is widely cited by Classical Christian educators. He translated Josef Pieper, Tradition: Concept and Claim (ISIBooks, 2008; St. Augustine’s, 2010) and contributed the Introduction to Herbert Jordan’s translation of Homer’s Iliad (Oklahoma UP, 2008).
