"Coming home with Odysseus: meeting myself in re-reading." A short essay for the WCC's publication Cloelia reflecting on the cycles of learning, re-reading, and memory. It was inspired by a moment that occurred when I was re-reading the Odyssey one winter, and I had a vivid recollection of the first time I had read a passage as an undergraduate student in a 3rd semester Greek class, 14 years earlier. 

Works in progress:

Facing Medusa: the development and significance of the Gorgon in Greco-Roman antiquity. I am currently writing a book about the history and development of the Gorgon. It is important to me that my book contributes to the field of classics by being firmly rooted in the primary sources, but I also want it to be accessible to the non-specialist reader; the Gorgon is an important cultural figure beyond Greco-Roman antiquity, so I want my book to provide background and context for anyone curious about her. The book analyzes literature and visual art from Greece and Rome, and is organized thematically, addressing issues such as the role of the gaze in her story, the question of her noisiness, why she is so often related to the sea and to snakes and horses, and how, as an immortal goddess fated to die, she functions as a death figure. In the introduction, I use late 19th and early 20th century scholarship on the Gorgon as a way of introducing both her story and her significance in the modern imagination, while the afterword briefly summarizes her reception. Given the richness of the figure, I was surprised in my initial research to discover that no recent, book-length treatment of the Gorgon or Medusa exists - an oversight I intend to correct.

Annotated Iliad. English translation with facing-page commentary of Homer's Iliad. Designed to make the poem more accessible to students or independent readers who are new to the work and its tradition. Notes include discussion of key Greek concepts and vocabulary as well as maps, appendices of characters and relationships, and overview summaries of each book for readers who only want to read certain books in full.
