Graduate Teaching Associate
Trent Sanders' research interests include religion, philosophy, antiquity, Patristics, the epic, and Milton. He has published in the literary journal Philosophy and Literature, and is currently writing a master's thesis on Milton, seventeenth-century religious rites and thought in England, and Martyrdom. He is also developing a series of short plays which merge antiquity and early Christian martyrs into contemporary life, thought, and feeling. Most recently, he is writing a play about what a modern day saint is, but uses the genre conventions of myth to tell the story. </p>
