Barbara Graziosi (Professor of Classics at Princeton University) will be the Townsend Visiting Professor in Fall 2019. Professor Graziosi will deliver three Townsend Lectures on September 10, 13, and 17. Graziosi's research focuses on ancient Greek literature and the ways in which audiences and readers make it their own. This overall focus is expressed in a series of publications on ancient Greek literature and its reception, in her support for innovative work in the digital humanities (particularly via Optical Character Recognition as applied to ancient Greek and early printed books in Latin), as well as in her teaching, public engagement, and broadcasting.
