K. Scarlett Kingsley
K. Scarlett Kingsley is an Assistant Professor of Classics at Agnes Scott College in Atlanta, GA. She holds a Ph.D. from Princeton University (2010-16). Her first book project, which has been awarded a Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for the academic year 2019-20, explores early Greek historiography as a genre in dialogue with Presocratic intellectual culture. Her recent publications include a chapter on Herodotus’ citation at 3.38 of Pindar fr.169a and a forthcoming article in Classical Quarterly on Thucydides 2.77, the philosopher Anaxagoras, and the repurposing of a Homeric simile. At the CHS, she will complete a co-authored monograph with Tim Rood (St. Hugh’s, Oxford). The monograph interrogates the end of Herodotus’ Histories as an entrée to debates on luxury, migration, and empire in the text as a whole and in debates current in the fifth century. The monograph juxtaposes this closural moment with a series of reception studies – from Thucydides to Erasmus – that engage with it.
