I have taught at UC Berkeley since 1973 and served as Chair of the Department of Classics from 1993 to 2000. I was founding Director of the Center for the Tebtunis Papyri (2001-2011). I have published extensively on the ancient Athenian tragedian Euripides and various aspects of ancient drama, including interpretation, staging and dramatic technique, textual studies, and commentaries. My current project, a digital edition of the scholia on Euripides (EuripidesScholia.org), combines my interests in digital technologies, in the digital future of scholarship, and in textual tradition and editing. I am currently leading an open-access publication project, California Classical Studies. As of Jan. 1, 2016, I have retired from regular service, but will continue for some years as Professor of the Graduate School, working with graduate students and teaching one course per year.
