Prof Roy Gibson
(email at firstname.lastname@example.org)
A native of Belfast, I gained my BA (1987) and PhD (1993) in Classics at Sidney Sussex college, Cambridge, and - after a brief stint there as Junior Research Fellow and Director of Studies in Classics (1992-94) - I joined the Department of Classics & Ancient History at the University of Manchester in 1994, becoming Professor of Latin in 2004. On 1 September 2018 I joined the Dept. of Classics & Ancient History at Durham as Professor of Classics.
As part of my AHRC Ancient Letter Collections project, I am happy to offer talks to schools on aspects of ancient letters and letter collections, includng Cicero and Pliny.
