Description

One of the most vibrant and productive Homerists of her generation, Casey Dué is Professor and Director of Classical Studies (Department of Modern and Classical Languages) at the University of Houston and an Executive Editor at the Center for Hellenic Studies, Washington, D.C. She is one of the world’s leading experts on lament, women’s voices in Homer and Greek tragedy, and oral traditional poetry; the author of several books, including Homeric Variations on a Lament by Briseis (2002), The Captive Woman’s Lament in Greek Tragedy (2006), Iliad 10 and the Poetics of Ambush: A Multitext Edition with Essays and Commentary (co-authored with Mary Ebbott, 2010); and the editor of Recapturing a Homeric Legacy: Images and Insights from the Venetus A Manuscript of the Iliad (2009). Her numerous articles range in subject from soldiers’ emotional bonds in Homeric similes to digital textual criticism to Homer’s post-classical legacy. A pioneer in digital humanities, Casey is one of the master-minds behind the “Homer Multitext” project at the Center for Hellenic Studies and recipient of multiple grants from the NEH and other institutions for her work on the Homer Multitext and related projects, among them “The Ancient World Through Web-based Technology” and “Editing as a Discovery Process: Accessing Centuries of Scholarship in One 10th-Century Manuscript of the Iliad.”
