To whoever wants to delete this page,

I found Elizabeth's name on the entry Homeric scholarship, in which narratology is described as having 'perhaps the most significant developments' in our contemporary Homeric studies and her research is listed alongside those of Irene de Jong's and Egbert Bakker's to illustrate these developments. For sure, de Jong is the most important of them, but I don't know much about her life, education, and academic positions, so I leave her entry for other people. But to regard one of the three leading scholars in the mainstream methodological field of the studies of Homer (THE most important poet in western history) as 'non-notable academic' is a bit problematic.

Cheers,

  • I am afraid that she meets the third of those criteria, for she has been recently elected as a Fellow to the Australian Academy of Humanities, as you can check here [1]. 07.13, 16 February 2011 (UTC). —Preceding unsigned comment added by 150.203.220.64 (talk)
