UCSB Classics Welcomes New Faculty Member Annie Lamar

We are delighted to announce that Annie Lamar will be joining the Classics faculty as an Assistant Professor next year. Professor Lamar (PhD, Stanford) is a Classicist and Data Scientist whose research uses computational methods to analyze Homer and develops machine-learning models for low-resource languages like ancient Greek. 

Professor Lamar joins a growing network of faculty in computational linguistics and humanistic data science on campus. She will teach a range of Classics courses, as well as a new course in Literary Text Mining (Spring 2025) and other new courses in Classics & Data Science. Her computational linguistics lab will offer exciting opportunities for undergraduate majors and graduate students to participate in high-level research.
