Charles Pletcher

Charles Pletcher comes to Dartmouth by way of Deep Springs College and Brown University (B.A. Classics and Comparative Literature).

Broadly, his work focuses on the 20th-century Latin American reception of ancient Greek literature and philosophy.

This year, his master's thesis develops the notion of the Aristotelian mean through a reading of Griselda Gambaro's Antígona furiosa and Sophocles' Antigone.

This winter, he is TA-ing a course on Latino/a American theater, and in the fall he worked with the Classics department on revising their Latin curriculum.

Outside of literature, he works as a software engineer, and in the long term, he would like to bridge the gaps between his work in these two disciplines.
