Bio: Aaron Hershkowitz is a graduate student pursuing a PhD in Classics at Rutgers New Brunswick. He conducted his undergraduate studies at the University of Maryland, College Park, where he received dual degrees in Classical Languages and Literature and English Literature in 2009. He is currently at work on his dissertation, which explores demagogic politicians and political leadership in Imperial Athens. One of his major projects involves using a modern spreadsheet program to statistically analyze Athenian financial inscriptions. He presented the initial results of his analysis at a panel on Athenian hegemonic finances at the Celtic Conference in Classics at the University of Edinburgh in 2010, and a considerably more advanced version is forthcoming as a chapter in a collection of the papers of the panel, to be published by the Classical Press of Wales. Aaron spent the 2014-2015 academic year at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens in Greece with the generous support of the Fulbright Foundation, continuing his work both on his dissertation and his epigraphic pursuits.
