Joseph DiLuzio is A.B.D. in Classical Studies at Boston University and currently teaches in the Classics Department at Baylor University. He earned his B.A. in History from The College of New Jersey and then completed an M.A. in Classical Archaeology at Tufts University. At Boston University, his research has focused on the law and politics of the fifth-century Athenian democracy and the Roman Republic. His dissertation on Cicero’s rhetoric of the People looks at how the orator characterizes the Roman People, the nature of its power, and its role in Republican politics in a variety of his early speeches. Joe has a wide range of interests, including the impact of the Classics on the American Revolutionary generation. He and his wife, Meghan, live in Texas with their dog – Toby.
