Seán Easton teaches in both the Classics department and the Peace Studies program. The field of Classics centers on the history and literature of Ancient Greece and Rome. Seán's focus of research is Latin poetry, especially epic; the pre-modern world as it is represented in cinema; and approaches in the Greco-Roman world to transforming conflict from violent forms into non-violent forms.
Seán is also director of the Peace Studies program. He regularly teaches 'Introduction to Peace Studies' in alternation with Mimi Gerstbauer and Joaquín Villanueva. His areas of research include the pre-modern history of peace and non-violence, as well as cinematic representations of peace and conflict.
Seán also maintains a blog ('Centuries Coexist'), which deals with the reception of ancient Greece and Rome in film and television. The link is here.
