Faculty Mentors

powerProfessor Timothy Power studies the culture and politics of Greece from the sixth to the fourth century BCE, primarily Athens, with a special focus on the private and public performance of music and poetry there. He has published work on the Epinician poets Bacchylides and Pindar, dithyrambic choral poetry in Athens, the elegiac poet Ion of Chios, and the intensely politicized culture of competitive musicians in Greece and Rome. Currently he is beginning a book on the cultural acoustics of Classical Athens, how voice, sound, and listening shaped the sociocultural experience of the city's inhabitants. When not researching or teaching, he enjoys cooking, walking, playing music, and reading detective novels.
