Glenn has received bachelor’s degrees in Classics and French from Barrett, the Honors College at Arizona State University and a master’s degree in Classics and Digital Humanities from Tufts University. In 2018, he was awarded the Concordia Foundation Fellowship to study Classical Arabic at Harvard Divinity School. Since arriving at UCLA, Glenn has joined the team of researchers and scholars working on the Sinai Manuscripts Digital Library Project, contributing to the cataloging and collation of the Arabic manuscript collection preserved at Saint Catherine’s Monastery in Mount Sinai, Egypt. His dissertation, Hyperhistories: Biographical Networks of the Ancient Greeks and Romans from Medieval Baghdad to Modern Medan, deals with the reception of Alexander the Great, Cleopatra, Emperor Julian the Apostate, Julius Caesar, and Aesop in world culture, utilizing a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to bridge traditional philology with network and systems theory, cognitive psychology and memory studies, as well as semiotics, participatory media, and computer science. Glenn is also currently co-editing a book on the reception of Batman in global media, contributing his own articles on regional adaptations of the character in Arabic and Indonesian language comics. He has presented research at conferences hosted by the Arizona Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies, Willamette University, Brandeis University, University of Virginia, Western Michigan University, and Rice University.
