As always, host Bob Barrett selects an Academic Minute to air during The Best of Our Knowledge.
Each week this program examines some of the issues unique to college campuses, looks at the latest research, and invites commentary from experts and administrators from all levels of education.
For this week‘s edition (#1418), Bob has selected Jennifer Sheridan Moss‘ segment on Baby Boomers going back to college. Dr. Moss, associate professor of the classics and Latin at Wayne State University, explores why seniors should keep on learning to fend off the problems of old age.
Jennifer Sheridan Moss is an Associate Professor of Classics at Wayne State University in Detroit MI. There she teaches beginning to graduate level classes in Latin language and ancient history. She is the winner of numerous teaching awards, including that of the Society for Classical Studies.
Moss’ research focuses on the history of Roman Egypt in the 4th century CE. She is especially interested in this history of taxation, and on the role and status of women in this dynamic province of the Roman Empire. Moss also conducts research in Classics and Latin pedagogy.
