Luise Marion Frenkel is Assistant Professor in Classical Greek at DLCV-FFLCH/Universidade de São Paulo, Brazil, since 2013. Since 2012 she has been awarded post-doctoral fellowships at the British School at Rome, DLCV-FFLCH/USP, Fondation Hardt (Switzerland), the University of Birmingham (UK), the Eberhard Karls Universität Tübingen (Germany), the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt (Germany) and the Max-Weber Kolleg (Erfurt, Germany), where she was also a junior fellow in 2017/18. Since 2015 she has been a Visiting Scholar at St Edmunds College, Cambridge. As a Gates scholar, she received a Ph.D. in Divinity from the University of Cambridge (2007-2012). She also holds a Ph.D. in Applied Mathematics from the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics, USP, Brazil (2003-2007), a B.A. in Classical Greek (2006) and a B.Sc. in Molecular Sciences (2003), both also from USP. In her interdisciplinary research, she explores Late Antiquity, especially the development of oral traditions, historiographic narratives, philosophical schools and of the sciences. Her peer-reviewed articles, chapters and monograph focus on religious controversies and social unrest from the fourth to seventh century CE, narratives of individualisation and institutionalisation, processes of Romanisation and Hellenisation, late-antique networks in Africa and the Indian Ocean and the ancient and modern reception of Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Ge'ez, Arabic and imperial and Byzantine Greek texts. Current projects address migration and mobility in the late Roman Empire in the East, the textual representation of Arab incursions and the critical edition of a Syriac manuscript of a fifth-century Greek dialogue.
