Highlights & Recent Activity

My most recent project is an online commentary on Homer Odyssey 9-12 for Dickinson College Commentaries, a collaboration with Thomas Van Nortwick (Nathan A. Greenberg Professor of Classics Emeritus, Oberlin College) and Christopher Francese (Asbury Clarke Professor of Classics, Dickinson College). As part of this project I worked with four Student Research Partners, funded by the Humanities Center, in December 2021. I’m currently working on a commentary on Odyssey 5-8 with the same collaborators at Dickinson and Oberlin. I’m also working with Austin Mason and Alex Knodell to create an annotated digital 3D model of a Homeric ship to accompany the commentaries.
