Congratulations to Dr Valerio Ricciardi

Congratulations to Dr Valerio Ricciardi, who has passed his PhD viva with no corrections. His PhD thesis, ‘Cicero’s Philosophical Rhetoric’, argues that rhetoric plays a larger and more pervasive role in Cicero’s philosophical and political thought than is usually assumed. His co-supervisors were Prof. Phillip Horky and Dr Nathan Gilbert (Durham), with supervision by Jaap Wisse (Newcastle). His examiners were Prof. Roy Gibson (Durham) and Dr George Karamanolis (Vienna).
