Amie received her BA in Classics (with honors) from Gustavus Adolphus College in 2016 and her MA in Classics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2018. Her dissertation, entitled “On the Nature of Architecture: An Ecocritical Approach to Vitruvius” examines the role of natura in Vitruvius’ De Architectura and argues that a fuller understanding and appreciation of Nature’s role in the text unifies the otherwise seemingly varied topics that Vitruvius covers into a cohesive corpus of architecture.

At UW, Amie has taught a variety of courses in the department, including Classical Mythology, The Greeks and The Romans (Comm-B, writing intensive courses), Western Literature and Art, Elementary Latin, and Intensive Latin. In the summer of 2019, she served as a Graduate Fellow for the Writing Across the Curriculum program and in 2021 was awarded the L&S Continuity of Instruction Award for exceptional instruction as a teaching assistant during the recent pandemic.
