Noah Dion’s interest in the Renaissance began as an undergraduate at the University of Connecticut, where he earned degrees in classics and English and wrote his honor’s thesis on the reception of Virgil’s Eclogue 4 in Early Modern England. He pursued this interest further at Brown and Yale, where his research focused on the Augustinian influences in Milton’s retelling of the Genesis creation account. His study of classical rhetoric and extensive involvement at Yale’s undergraduate and graduate writing centers lead to an interest in composition studies. He continues to explore new ways of adapting classical rhetorical models to modern writing pedagogies.
