The Barr Smith Library and the Cowan Grant are pleased to announce that PhD Art History candidate Dana Rehn is the successful applicant for the 2017 Bill Cowan Barr Smith Library Fellowship from a strong field of candidates.

For Dana’s application, she demonstrated how invaluable the Barr Smith Library collection is to her research. Dana’s thesis consults a vast cross-section of fields from the library including classical poems, Reformation history, witchcraft, science and pictorial prints from the art historical collection.

Winning this fellowship means that Dana can exclusively work on her research in her final and most important year of candidature. Furthermore, this fellowship is acknowledgement of Dana’s work. Congratulations Dana!

Dana’s thesis examines the motif of the canine-human hybrid in German Renaissance prints with the preliminary title of ‘The Big Bad Wolf: representations of the “Other” in German Renaissance Prints.’

the peripatetics

About the Book

The Peripatetics is the first book in English to provide a survey of this important philosophical tradition. It explores the development of Aristotle’s school (the Peripatos) from his immediate successors Theophrastus and Strato (4th-3rd c. BCE) to the work of the commentator Alexander of Aphrodisias (2nd c. AD). The book examines whether there was a fundamental tension between philosophical creativity and the notion of a fixed doctrine. It also discusses the major philosophical preoccupations of the Peripatetics, interactions with Hellenistic schools of thought, and the shift in focus among Greek philosophers in a changing political landscape.

This book will be of interest to students in Classics, ancient philosophy, and anyone interested in the Greek philosophical tradition.

Han Baltussen is Hughes Professor of Classics at the University of Adelaide, Australia. After completing his PhD at Utrecht (Netherlands), he held postdoctoral positions in Utrecht, Washington, and London.
