John Franklin teaches Greek and Latin language and literature, especially epic, lyric and comedy, with occasional escapades into the Ancient Near East, and music archeology.
Much of my research has dealt with early Greek cultural history at the Near Eastern interface(s), focusing especially on the interaction of poetic/musical traditions, always in hopes of elucidating broader issues. My undergraduate background, in music composition and electronic music (B.M. new England Conservatory 1988), remains an influence: the history of ancient music technology, both physical and conceptual, is crucial to my research.
