Both Dr. Pache and Dr. Latimore were huge inspirations for me during my time at Trinity and after I graduated. Both will be greatly missed. https://t.co/FPsIITV033

A graduate of Hunter College and Harvard University, Doctor Pache joined the Trinity faculty in 2009. Her interests included Greek archaic poetry — especially Homer and the Homeric Hymns — Greek religion and myth, and the modern reception of ancient poetry.
