Professor Keane's research and teaching interests range broadly over Greek and Roman literature and culture, but center on the comic genres and their engagement with moral, social, and literary problems. Her research focuses on the Roman verse satirists Lucilius, Horace, Persius, and Juvenal and the Roman epigrammatist Martial.
Prior to joining the department in 2001, Professor Keane taught at Reed College and Northwestern University. She has held research fellowships from the Mellon Foundation, the Loeb Classical Library Foundation, the Center for the Humanities at Washington University, and the Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program at the University of Cincinnati.
