David M. Johnson (a.k.a. Dr. J) is a classicist who has taught content courses from the Bronze Age to Late Antiquity, and language courses in both Latin and Greek. Johnson's primary research interest is the Athenian author Xenophon (c. 430-350 BCE), particularly Xenophon's works about Socrates. Johnson received a Ph.D. in Classics from UNC Chapel Hill in 1996, and has taught at SIUC in 1998.

Johnson's most noteworthy recent publication is his book on Xenophon's Socrates, entitled Xenophon's Socratic Works (Routledge 2021).

He is quite happy to tell you rather more about himself at david-m-johnson.net.
