Visiting Assistant Professor of Classics

Expertise: Greek and Roman poetry

Dr. Ehrhardt is excited to bring her love of classical texts, society and art to John Carroll.  She particularly enjoys, as both a scholar and a teacher, combining Greek and Roman poetry with ancient material culture to examine the interactions (and disjunctions) between different cultural products—particularly in the context of eating and drinking.  A native of Wisconsin, she completed her Ph.D. at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and her B.A. at Macalester College in St. Paul, MN.  Her current research includes articles on Roman satire, Horace’s Odes and the Greek symposium.
