Sanjaya Thakur receives fellowship to continue research

Sanjaya Thakur, assistant professor of classics and co-director of the Program in Feminist and Gender Studies, has been awarded the Arthur E. and Elizabeth S. Gordon Fellowship at the Center for Epigraphical and Palaeographical Studies at Ohio State University in Columbus, Ohio.  Thakur will be a fellow at the center during his sabbatical in the fall of 2012.

Thakur's research centers on the literature and culture of the Augustan age, specifically the later works of the poet Ovid. The Center for Epigraphical and Palaeographical Studies’ holdings include, in addition to a comprehensive library to support the study of Greek and Latin inscriptions, a number of special collections. While there, Thakur will continue research on his book manuscript, tentatively titled "The Lover's Wife," a study of the Roman poet Ovid's characterization of his wife in his exile epistles, the Tristia and Epistulae ex Ponto
