Scholarship

My research specialities are Homeric epic and ancient Greek tragedy. I investigate the Iliad and Odyssey as oral, traditional epics and strive to understand them on those terms. For both Homeric epic and Greek tragedy, I am especially interested in the performance of these works and how that performance informs or affects interpretation of them. Much of my scholarship is collaborative, especially that related to the Homer Multitext.
