We were sad to say farewell over the summer to Vera Pantanizopoulos-Broux, our fearless program coordinator of six years. While we were very sorry to see her go, we wish her well on her new adventures, which include spending time with her family and teaching German at Pellissippi State Community College.
In August, Katie Hodges-Kluck, a graduate of UT’s PhD program in history, was hired as the Institute’s new program coordinator and research associate. She has been an active member of the Marco community for many years, and we are pleased to have her on board in this new capacity!
In 2016, Marco also added an associate director and appointed Gregor Kalas, associate professor of architecture, to the position. Professor Kalas, who specializes in the architecture of late antiquity and the early Middle Ages, is helping oversee Marco’s expanding graduate programs, digital humanities projects, and community outreach.
