Dr. Romano is a specialist in ancient Greek literature and culture with broad interests in digital humanities and pedagogy. He runs the graduate program in Digital Humanities at FSU. He regularly teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in humanities broadly conceived (e.g. HUM 2020 “The Art of Being Human”), digital cultures and technology (the e-series course “Technologies of Memory from Antiquity to Today”), and digital humanities (including everything from data analytics and visualization to web development and digital pedagogy). With Tarez Graban and Sarah Stanley, he co-founded the Demos Project for the Study of Data Humanities, an initiative to foster research, teaching, and learning about people in data. Dr. Romano holds a Ph.D. from Stanford in Classics and a BA from the University of Pennsylvania in Classics and in Comparative Literature. Before coming to FSU, he was a postdoc and lecturer in the Department of Classics at the University of Chicago. He won an FSU Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2010 and awards for Online Teaching and Course Design in 2016.
