Stephanie Larson is Associate Professor and Chair of Classics at Bucknell University. She specializes in culture and identities of the Archaic and Classical periods in Greece and considers herself both a cultural historian and a philologist.
Larson has published articles on Homer, Herodotus, Sappho, religious identity, Greek epigraphy, and the history of federal states in ancient Greece. Her book, Boiotian Collective Identity in the Late Archaic and Early Classical Periods, was published as volume 197 of the Historia Einzelschriften by Franz Steiner Press in Stuttgart, Germany. It has received positive reviews in both England and Germany.
Professor Larson has been named Bucknell's National Endowment for the Humanities Chair in the Humanities for fall 2009 - fall 2012. During this period she will be working on the intersections between poetry and ethnicity in the praise poetry of Pindar, one of the most prolific and famous poets of the early 5th century BCE.
Professor Larson received her Ph.D from the University of Texas at Austin in 2001 and her B.A. in Classics and Latin from the University of Minnesota in 1992.
