Dennis Trout: Archie K. Davis Fellowship, National Humanities Center 2019-2020

Dennis Trout is a Fellow at the National Humanities Center this year.  During his residency at the center he will be completing a book titled Monumental Verse, which offers the first comprehensive study of the metrical building inscriptions of late ancient Rome.

As one of the world’s leading institutes for advanced study for over forty years, the National Humanities Center has provided essential support for the humanities, encouraging excellence in scholarship and teaching while affirming the importance of the humanities in American life.

The Center’s contributions can be found in more than 1,500 books produced by its Fellows, in the extensive materials and innovative programs it offers teachers to invigorate their classrooms, and in the stimulating slate of lectures, symposia, conferences and other public events it presents throughout the year.
