Adam Katz, a Brown sophomore, has been awarded an UTRA (Undergraduate Teaching and Research Award) from the Dean of the College for a summer research collaboration with Johanna Hanink (Assistant Professor of Classics). The UTRA has been granted for a project entitled "Theatrical Self-Referentiality in Greek Drama".
As part of this research collaboration, Katz will be creating a coded database of instances in Classical Greek tragedy in which actors draw attention to their status as performers within a play.
Professor John Bodel, Chair of the Department of Classics, recently spoke to the Brown Daily Herald about the importance of international scholarly collaborations. Read the full story from the BDH here.
The Brown Classical Journal invites all undergraduates with an interest in Classics to submit works relevant to the ancient world and its traditions in subsequent eras. It also welcomes submissions that treat the cultures of any ancient society, East or West, that touches on Greco-Roman antiquity.
These may include research papers, essays, translations, poetry, original photographs, artwork and creative pieces.
