Bryant Kirkland wins Goodwin Award of Merit

Published: November 20, 2023

Global Antiquity congratulates Professor Bryant Kirkland, whose recently released book, Herodotus and Imperial Greek Literature: Criticism, Imitation, Reception, was awarded the Charles J. Goodwin Award of Merit from the Society for Classical Studies. The award citation calls the book an “innovative work that exemplifies (in [Kirkland’s] own words) ‘the multidirectional transit of receptive reading.’ He not only challenges the idea of any final and complete version of ‘Herodotus’… but he also diversifies the canon of Greek literature, by breaking down distracting and unhelpful hierarchies which can sometimes manifest themselves if we implicitly deny nuanced creativity to some authors and banish them to the margins.”
