Jonah Radding received his Ph.D. in Classics from the University of Chicago. Much of his work has focused on Greek tragedy, especially the manner in which Euripides engages with earlier tragic and poetic traditions in order to dramatize issues of political and civic ideology. Other areas of interest include archaic and classical Greek lyric poetry, Greek historiography, and the social and political history of fifth-century Greece. He is currently revising a book manuscript entitled The Politics of Poetry in Euripidean Tragedy, and working on new projects on Bacchylides’ Fifth Ode, conceptions of anarchy in classical Athens, and on the figure of Calchas in archaic and classical Greek poetry.
