The American Philological Association is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Ellen Bauerle of the University of Michigan Press as Editor, and Dr. Wells Hansen of Milton Academy as Assistant Editor, of Amphora, its Outreach publication, effective January 2012.
Ellen has for several years worked as the editor for classics and archaeology at the University of Michigan Press. She also oversees book production for the not-for-profit Michigan Classical Press, and in the past has created and sold ebooks on the web. Recipient of a BA in Greek and English from Oberlin College, and an MA and PhD in Classics from the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, she has been an Eric P. Newman Fellow at the American Numismatic Society and Seymour Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies in Athens. Ellen is delighted that Amphora is evolving to include the latest technologies, as additional ways of reaching its key constituencies among interested nonspecialists, scholars, teachers and students at the secondary level, and administrators.
In addition to his role as housemaster at Milton Academy outside of Boston, where he manages the academic and social programs of about 40 students each year, Wells teaches in Milton's classics department. He also works with university partners and private clients in Asia to promote talent identification and development, especially in math and science. After earning his BA in classics from Boston College, and his MA in classics at the University of Chicago, Wells received his doctorate in education at the University of Massachusetts at Boston. A longstanding APA member, he has published numerous journal articles about classical topics, especially Roman poetry. Wells has a particular interest in developing the visibility of Amphora in social media and in social aspects of the web.
