David Ungvary, Assistant Professor of Classics at Bard College
David Ungvary, assistant professor of classics, has been selected to receive Harvard University’s Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for the 2021–22 academic year. This highly competitive fellowship supports major research and publications in classical studies, and will allow Professor Ungvary to complete his first monograph, The Poetics of Asceticism in Late Antique Gaul
, forthcoming from Oxford University Press. The book provides an original history of provincial Christian Latin authors of the fifth century CE, composing amid “the fall of the Roman Empire,” who responded to political instability with poetic performances of strict religious discipline.
