Lately I’ve been working on a long, two-part article that’s just now being published in Arion, Boston University’s journal of humanities and the classics. It’s called “The Coming Classics Revolution,” but it goes beyond classics to present a new understanding of how the ancient Greek invention of the alphabet changed the way we see the world. I’m hoping this essay will make enough of a splash to land me an offer for the associated trade book project, The Alphabet Revolution: How a Humble Writing System Changed Everything Forever.
