Graduate Teaching Assistant


Hi! My name is Vaughn Fenton. I am a graduate student here at UIUC in the Classics department. I'm a historian of the ancient Mediterranean, and my main interests are Ancient Carthage and Ancient militaries, with a particular interest in Late Antique militaries. I've written a number of Youtube videos for Invicta History which chronicle the rise and fall of Carthage, helped co-host the Association of Ancient Historians conference at the University of Illinois in 2021, and in the 2021-2022 academic year held an editorial assistantship with the Illinois Classical Studies journal. In my free time, I enjoy sci-fi and painting models.
