Congratulations to Dr. Jared Klein on 50 years at UGA!

We congratulate Jared Klein, Distinguished Research Professor, on the completion of his 50th year as a faculty member at UGA. Dr. Klein joined the UGA Department of Classics in Fall 1972. A specialist in historical Indo-European linguistics focusing on syntax and discourse structure, Dr. Klein has an impressive list of publications to his credit (2 books, 2 monographs, 5 edited books, 69 articles), which continues to grow, and has been recognized with numerous honors and awards. As a member of the former Linguistics Program, he served as Director from 1980-1986, 1992, and 2004-2016, and was instrumental in the creation of the current Department of Linguistics.

A gifted teacher, with boundless curiosity, enthusiasm, patience, and kindness, Dr. Klein has introduced generations of students to Indo-European linguistics, many of whom have gone on to careers in the field. He continues to regularly teach Historical Linguistics, Introduction to Indo-European Studies, Classical Sanskrit, Vedic Sanskrit, Avestan, Classical Armenian, Gothic, Comparative Grammar of Greek and Latin, Hittite, and Old Irish.
