CURRENT RESEARCH ACTIVITIES
I have several sole-authored projects in progress currently (spring 2012): a commentary on Horace Odes 2 for the Cambridge Greek and Latin Classics (green and yellow) series; another volume on Apuleius, collecting previously published papers on literary texture in the Metamorphoses, for OUP; a new edition of the Greece and Rome New Survey on Horace for CUP, and a monograph on the reception of Horace in the Victorian period for Duckworth. Collaborative work includes editing or co-editing two conference volumes on the reception of the ancient novels, one on the reception of Sappho at Rome, one on characterisation in Apuleius’ Metamorphoses, one on expurgation in classical scholarship, one on the classical radio plays of Louis MacNeice, one on the ‘democratic turn’ in recent reception of the classics, and membership of the Groningen Commentaries on Apuleius team working on a joint commentary on Met.11 (the Isis-book). I have also agreed to edit the Silvae of the great Scottish neo-Latin poet George Buchanan (1506-1582) for an international Buchanan edition directed by Philip Ford. Various conference papers and chapters are also in progress, on Horace, Flavian poetry, and Apuleius.
