Research Currently in Progress

Works in Progress

  • A book entitled The Death of the Afterlife, which examines and refutes notions about the afterlife, specifically those regarding the idea that personhood will survive or be reconstituted post-mortem.
  • An expansion of my 2004 CJ article The Absence of Whiteness, which explores the idea of conventional skin-tone racial identity, or lack thereof, on the part of the ancient Greeks and Romans.
  • A follow up to Iuncturae Homericae, which is to be a thorough study of the epithetic expressions gathered in Part 1.
  • An NEH Fellowship project entitled Humanitas Romana.
  • Introductory commentary in R. J. Cunliffe’s Lexicon of the Homeric Dialect and Homeric Proper and Place Names, a consolidated reprint which will see both works in a single volume for the first time.
