This year, Dr. Miller was appointed the University of Winnipeg’s 2019 Chancellor’s Research Chair.Dr. Miller’s work,” says Dr. Glenn Moulaison, Dean of Arts, “is an excellent illustration of the fact that the past is ever-present and informs how we see the world today. It also highlights Dr. Miller’s commitment to having his teaching informed by his research excellence.” Dr. Matt Gibbs, Chair of the Classics Department, adds that, “Peter is one the finest researchers that I’ve ever seen. His ambition and his ability to show that his research—in fact, all research in Classics—can be informative, interesting, and enlightening not only for academics, but more importantly for the general public, is second to none."
