Maria G. Xanthou (PhD Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) is a Teaching Fellow at the Department of Classics and Ancient History, University of Bristol. She has previously taught Classical Languages, Literature and Thought and ICT in teaching classical languages at Aristotle University of Thessaloniki since 2001. She also taught at the Open University of Cyprus and collaborated with the Centre for Greek Language in Thessaloniki in a number of research projects on the use of ICT in teaching classical languages. Her research interests include Greek lyric poetry, both monodic and choral (Stesichorus, Pindar and Bacchylides), Aristophanic and Attic comedy (5th c. BCE), Attic rhetoric (Isocrates), history of classical scholarship (German classical scholarship of the 19th c.), textual criticism, literary theory, rhetoric, ancient theory of rhetoric (definition and use of asyndeton), e-learning, ICT use for teaching classical languages and integration of ICT methodologies in the curriculum. While at CHS, she pursued further research on the social and cultural construction of fear (φόβος), awe (δέος) and anger (ὀργή) as emotions in the 5th and 4th c. BCE political scene in Attica, Greek mainland and the islands, and the formation of goodwill (εὔνοια) as a response towards these emotions and its significance in the development of Isocrates’ emotional intelligence theory.
