Here is a one-paragraph, short version of my CV:

John G. Younger joined the University of Kansas in 2002 as Professor of Classics; he came from Duke University where he taught for 27 years. He has also taught in the department of Humanities and Western Civilization, has been chair of Classics (2004-5) and of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies (2008-12), and now is the Director of Jewish Studies (2013-present). He has a BA in History (with majors in Music and Classics also fulfilled) from Stanford University, and an MA and PhD in Classics from the University of Cincinnati. Professor Younger's research focuses on the Bronze Age Aegean; he is currently involved with the Gournia Excavation Project and will be publishing the Minoan pottery workshop he excavated there. He also publishes on Classical Greek art (especially architecture and sculpture). He has written books on Minoan-Mycenaean engraved gemstones and on Music in the Aegean Bronze Age, as well as numerous articles on various Bronze Age and Classical topics (e.g., the book chapter "Minoan Women" in Women in Antiquity [2016], the book-encyclopedia Sex in the Ancient World, A-Z [2004], the architecture and sculpture of early synagogues in the upper Galillee region of Israel, an edited volume on the emperor Augustus's building program (Imperium and Cosmos by Paul Rehak, 2006), a monograph-length study, "Technical Observations on the Sculptures from the Temple of Zeus at Olympia" [Hesperia 78, 2009, 41-105], and "A View from the Sea" in The Seascape in Aegean Prehistory [2011]. He has one cat, two ducks, three dogs, and four chickens to keep him sane. As well as a husband, Cody Haynes.
