BA (Hons), MPhil, DPhil

Constanze Güthenke is a Professor of Greek Literature in the Faculty of Classics, as well as the E. P. Warren Praelector in Corpus Christi College.

Her research interests lie in the field of antiquity after antiquity, especially in questions of the disciplinary shape of Classics and critical histories of scholarship: why, and how, do classicists ask the questions they ask? Professor Güthenke is interested in questions of scholarly community, ancient and modern, and currently has a research project on transnational aspects of scholarship, asking what happens to classical knowledge when it migrates between places and contexts (especially in Europe and America).

Research interests: Greek literature; reception studies; the postclassical; history of scholarship; ancient biography; Aristophanes; Modern Greek literature
