After a comprehensive search, the ASCSA has chosen Jennifer Sacher to be the next editor of Hesperia following the departure of Susan Lupack in February.
“It is an honor to serve as the next editor of Hesperia and to be entrusted to continue the standard of excellence it achieved under the direction of recent editors Tracey Cullen and Susan Lupack,” Sacher said. “I am excited to join the talented staff of the School's Publications Office, and I look forward to working closely with scholars to present their work to the greater academic community.”
An alumna of Washington University in St. Louis, Sacher went on to earn an M.A. in Classics in 2008 from the University of Cincinnati, specializing in the study of Athenian pottery. She has participated in the College Year in Athens, as well as several seasons of fieldwork, including two in the Athenian Agora. Sacher has over a decade of experience in archaeological publishing, both as a full-time academic editor and as a freelance copyeditor and proofreader. Her unique combination of skills makes her an ideal fit for the editorship.
Sacher’s appointment is effective May 15, 2017.
