Congratulations to Dr. Pamela Zinn on winning a fellowship from the Loeb Classical Library for the 2021-22 school year for her book project, Lucretius On Animals. Lucretius has been recognized as among the most generous to animals of all ancient thinkers and his ideas presage a number of modern debates. But is this poetic simile, scientific argument, or some combination of both? What role do animals play in Lucretius' thinking and in his work as a whole? By addressing these questions, this book seeks to shed new light on the significance of animals in the poem and on Lucretius' place in the history of ideas.



Congratulations to Dr. Caroline Bishop on winning her second fellowship from the Loeb Classical Library for the 2021-22 school year for her second book project, A Roman Classic: Cicero Among Roman and Greek Readers. Her book will illuminate the origins of classicism through an in-depth examination of how Cicero was fashioned into a classic by both Roman and Greek readers. Cicero, as one of classicism's greatest success stories, is an ideal candidate for exploring how Roman and Greek readers and scholars contributed alike to the flourishing of classicism as an ideology, establishing paradigms that we still use to understand the ancient world today.



Dr. Jorge Zamora is part of the team led by Dr. Arlene García-Márquez, from the TTU School of Veterinary Medicine, which was recently awarded a $750,000 grant for the project entitled “Developing Spanish communicative competence among veterinary and animal science students to improve U.S. agriculture”.



Dr. Bernd Reiter has been awarded the 2021-2022 Fulbright Distinguished Chair of Public Policy Brazil position, for his proposal "No Sustainable Territorial Development without Indigenous Voices: For an inclusive Public Policy and Regional Integration.” He will be conducting empirical research in the northeast of Brazil during the summer of 2022 for this award. His host is the Joaquim Nabuco Foundation in Recife, Brazil.
