Bill Beck is a visiting assistant professor in the Department of Classical Studies at Indiana University, Bloomington. His research focuses on Homeric epic and its reception, particularly its scholarly reception in later antiquity. His monograph-in-progress, "The Narrative of the Iliad: Time, Space, and Story" is a narratologically-informed study of how the narrator’s representation of the Iliad’s story in time and space shapes interpretation. He is also engaged in a translation of the ancient scholia to the Iliad, "The Ancient Scholia to Homer’s Iliad: A Translation" (under contract with Cambridge University Press), and he is co-editing Exegesis, Interpretation, Dialogue: Reading the Iliad Scholia, to be published with the Bulletin of the Institute of Classical Studies. You can email him at rb14@iu.edu or find him on Twitter @GreekEtymology
