In the fall semester of 2019, Dr. Neil W. Bernstein was a Distinguished Scholar in Residence in the Department of Classical Studies at Western University in London, Ontario, Canada.

Bernstein is Professor of Classics & World Religions at Ohio University.

The primary objective of Western’s Distinguished Scholar in Residence Program is to bring high profile internationally recognized leaders to Western University to develop innovative ideas that contribute to the research and scholarly environment at Western. The aim is to build ties with Western researchers such that long-term and groundbreaking research will result from the collaborations developed through this program.

Bernstein collaborated with Professor Kyle Gervais on a project on the Roman playwright Seneca’s tragedy Hercules Furens and taught a graduate seminar on the late ancient Roman poet Claudian.
