Faculty Profile

James Conley, PhD

Associate Professor of Classical and Modern Languages: Latin, Emeritus

M.A., Ph.D. Loyola University of Chicago
B.A. Duquesne University

I enjoy showing students how, in reaching back to antiquity, we can see how lives were affected by issues, events, and developments that are still having an influence within human society today.

I believe that through teaching and learning, one enters into a world of growth and change, no matter what the historical time-frame.

Courses I Teach:

  • Classical Epic
  • Classical Mythology
  • Directed Reading in Latin literature
  • Greek & Roman Theater
  • History of Greece

Life Off Campus:

Outside Saint Michael's I enjoy gardening (on the level of a novice) to help me have grounded contact with the world and nature itself. I read for fun or general information to maintain contact with change.

Favorite Famous Quotes:

"I can do all things in Him who strengthens me!" - Philippians 4.13.

"Veni, Vidi, Vici." - Julius Caesar
