David W. Stifler

David Stifler is a PhD candidate in Classical Studies, focusing on Greek and Roman literature. His major interests are clustered around sociolinguistics, and include such topics as multilingualism, pidgins and creoles, and the development and expression of cultural identity in antiquity along linguistic lines. He is currently working on a dissertation, provisionally entitled "Lucian and the Atticists: A Barbarian at the Gates" centered on Lucian of Samosata in the context of cultural and grammatical issues of the Second Sophistic.
