Alexandra Lianeri is Assistant Professor of Classics and Translation Theory at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Her research focuses on the reception of classics in modern European thought over the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It examines how the engagement with the Greek and Roman pasts has shaped the antinomies of modern historiographical and political concepts, such as democracy, history, and historical time. She is writing a book on the conceptual history of democracy (Towards a New Athens? Translating Dēmokratia in Nineteenth-Century Britain, Oxford UP, forthcoming), and has edited volumes on ancient and modern historiography (The Western Time of Ancient History: Historiographical Encounters with the Greek and Roman Pasts, Cambridge UP, 2011; Knowing Future Time in and through Greek Historiography, De Gruyter 2016), as well as the reception and translation of classics (Translation and the Classic: Identity as Change in the History of Culture, coedited with V. Zajko, Oxford UP, 2008; Companion to the Translation of Greek and Latin Epic, with R. Armstrong, Blackwell, forthcoming).
