Brown Wins Loeb Foundation Grant
Congratulations to Professor Mitchell Brown, who recently learned that he has been chosen as a recipient of a grant from the Loeb Classical Library Foundation, one of the most prestigious and competitive grants available to researchers in the field of Classical Studies. With the support of the Loeb Foundation, Professor Brown will be on research leave for the 2022-23 academic year to complete work on his monograph Menander Offstage. Professor Brown’s innovative study focuses on Menander’s use of off-stage action both to add depth and complexity to his on-stage narratives and to his explorations of issues of gender, family, and domestic life. Professor Brown argues that this underappreciated aspect of Menander’s dramaturgy is one of the things that made him such an influential figure in the history of drama in the European tradition.
