Office: Dodd 226B
A former editor of the Transactions of the American Philological Association, I am currently editor of the APA textbooks series. My own recent publications include Constructing Literature in the Roman Republic (Cambridge 2005) and in collaboration with the musicologist Tom Beghin, an award-winning collection of essays entitled Haydn and the Performance of Rhetoric (Chicago 2007). I’ve recently returned to my early interest in Roman comedy, using VR computer models to test hypotheses about the staging of plays in traditional Republican venues, a project launched in 2010 with the help of a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship. On a more traditional level, there is a review article, 'Roman Comedy Gets Back to Basics,' in JRS 101 (2011) 206-21. My commentary on Terence’s Hecyra for the Cambridge Green and Yellow series is now in press. Current projects include (with Gesine Manuwald) a new edition of Ennius for the Loeb Classical Library and a reinvestigation of Callimachus' arrival in Rome. In Fall 2012 I will be T. B. L. Webster Research Fellow at the Institute of Classicsal Studies, University of London.
