Hannah Silverblank was born in Philadelphia, where she developed a love of dogs, root beer, fairy tales, music, Star Trek, oil painting, board games, ghost stories, and the stranger parts of life.
Dr. Silverblank unsuspectingly became a student of Greco-Roman antiquity while an undergraduate at Haverford College. After graduating from Haverford with a BA in Latin (High Honors) and Comparative Literature (High Honors), Silverblank went on to the University of Oxford, where she received a Master's (with Distinction) and a PhD in Classical Languages and Literature. In January 2017, she returned to Haverford College to teach courses in Greek, Latin, and English.
