Tom Keeline awarded two major fellowships for work on digital text

Professor Keeline has been awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities-Mellon Fellowship for Digital Publication for 2020 and has also been named a Faculty Fellow in the Washington University Center for the Humanities in Fall 2019. The project that he will complete with this support is a digital edition of the Ovidian poem Ibis, described by Professor Keeline as “a tour de force of poetic craft and erudition, steeped in intertextuality and recondite mythology.” The online critical text will give users unusually direct access to the variant readings of manuscripts of the Ibis and thus a better understanding of its transmission history.
