Intertextuality and Genre in Flavian Epic

Together with Damien Nelis and Lavinia Galli Milić of the University of Geneva and Neil Coffee of the University at Buffalo, I’ve explored new computational methods for identifying typical scenes and other generic markers in first-century CE Latin poetry, and for using these narrative features to detect literary allusion. We presented preliminary work at the Digital Classicist Berlin Seminar Series and at Digital Humanities 2016 in Krakow.

We’re also the editors of a new collection of essays focusing on novel methods in the study of first-century epic intertextuality, including digital and non-digital approaches.
