Daniel P. Harmon Endowed Lectureship

The Daniel P. Harmon Visiting Lectureship was endowed by Prof. Daniel P. Harmon (1938-2021), who taught in the Department of Classics at UW from 1967 to 2004 and was Chair from 1976 to 1991. Dan’s areas of scholarly interest were broad and included Latin poetry, Greek and Roman religion, Roman and Italic archaeology, linguistics, archaic Rome, and Etruscan studies. He loved to travel and spent a good deal of time in Rome, founding our Department’s Classical Seminar in Rome in 1987 and co-directing the UW Rome Center from 1994 to 2000. The Harmon Lectureship allows us to invite an especially distinguished visitor to campus each year to give a talk.
