I have written articles and delivered papers on the poetry of Lucretius, Vergil, Tibullus, Ovid, and Lucan. My main interest in Latin poetry is the allusive technique of the poets of the Augustan age, particularly Ovid. Most of my publications concern Ovid's Tristia, but I have recently switched my focus to my other interests in textual criticism, palaeography, neo-Latin, and medieval Latin.
This combination of interests recently led to two publications on a 15th-century manuscript of Lucan's De bello civili. In one of them, I used digital image enhancement and manipulation to uncover the deleted text of the colophon. In the other, I published my transcription of portions of the manuscript's marginalia and scholia that had never before appeared in print. I am also collaborating with my colleague Jason Houston on a translation of Boccaccio's minor Latin works for Harvard University Press' I Tatti Renaissance Library.
My major project is the Digital Latin Library, a collaborative effort of the Society for Classical Studies (formerly the American Philological Association), the Medieval Academy of America, and the Renaissance Society of America. The DLL was funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and hosted at OU.
