A past Chair of the Humanities Council, Denis Feeney works on Latin literature and on Roman culture more broadly, including especially Roman religion and time.

His latest book, Beyond Greek: The Beginnings of Latin Literature (2016), describes how the cultural flourishing that ultimately produced the Aeneid, the Metamorphoses, and other Latin classics was one of the strangest events in history.
