In Memoriam: Georgia Machemer

It is with great sorrow that we announce the recent death of our friend and colleague, Dr. Georgia Machemer.  Dr. Machemer taught on and off in Duke’s Classical Studies, including in 1993-94, F1997, F2001, F2002, F2003, F2005, F2006, and F2007.  She contributed to the department especially though her expertise in Greek language, literature, culture and history.  Her cheerful collegiality also added greatly to our community: she was always ready to discuss Plotinus or any other topic, and she made time for real conversation despite often teaching concurrently at both Duke and UNC-CH.  Dr. Machemer died on March 30, 2017 and will be sorely missed.  To learn more about her many accomplishments and richly intellectual life, see http://www.greensboro.com/obituaries/machemer-georgia-ann/article_4ebfe78e-de44-579f-afed-c9f58cbbcc0e.html
