Emma Dyson

Emma received her B.A. in 2018 from the University of Southern California on a full scholarship. She majored in English and Classics, and her undergraduate thesis, “Boethius and the Allegorical Tradition,” examined allegorical reworkings of the Aeneid in the sixth-century Consolation of Philosophy. After living in France for a year, she entered the Ph.D. program at Penn in 2019, where her research interests center on the literary and philosophical production of late-antique Rome.
