Dr. Marmorstein has been teaching at Northern since the fall 1988 semester and is the current mace-bearer, the distinction given the longest-serving Northern faculty member. He uses the handle "Ancient Art" because he's a specialist in ancient history and the most ancient of the NSU faculty members. He teaches lower division Western survey classes and upper division classes in ancient history, covering ancient Rome, ancient Greece, early church, and world religions.
Dr. Marmorstein did his undergraduate work at Stanford, earning his B.A. in drama (1974). After several years teaching high school English and drama, he returned to graduate school, eventually earning a Ph.D. in history at the University of California, Davis (1988).
