Fellowship Work Summary, 2002–03

Peter T. Struck drafted four chapters of his book on the semiotics of Greek and Roman divination, tentatively titled The Signifying God: Greek and Roman Theories of Divination; wrote an introduction and bibliography for a collected volume of essays he is coediting with Sarah Iles Johnston called Mantike: Studies in Greek and Roman Divination; and wrote a book review of Dan Cohn-Sherbok and John M. Court, Religious Diversity in the Graeco-Roman World for the Journal of Roman Studies. He also made final revisions for his book called Birth of the Symbol: Ancient Readers at the Limits of the Their Texts (Princeton University Press, forthcoming).
