Meg Penner successfully defended her thesis in 2014. Since then she has been translating Aristotle's "Politics" and Cicero's "de Inventione," and investigating Aristotle's perspective on political freedom and its reception in select Renaissance cities. Meg has taught in high schools in Ontario and BC for twenty years. Travelling and volunteer work has rounded out her years. She loves cats and dogs!
