Career Summary

Biography

Professor Harold Tarrant's main interests are in Greek Philosophy; aspects of Greek Comedy, especially Aristophanes; and the ancient Novel. Professor Tarrant joined the University of Newcastle in December 1993 from the School of Archaeology, Classics and Ancient History at the University of Sydney. Professor Tarrant has been an Executive Member of the International Plato Society and is a member of several bodies promoting ancient philosophy and classical studies.

Research Expertise
I have been centrally involved in the study of ancient Platonism from Socrates until the Alexandrian Neoplatonists. Individual books have tackled the Academy in the time of Philo of Larissa, the kind of Platonism associated with Thrasyllus and the corpus-organisers, Middle Platonism interpretation of Plato, and most recently Proclus' interpretation of Plato. Much of my work also involves issues central to Plato's own work and the work of his imitators. I have been particularly interested in the literary vehicles for Platonic communication, from Plato's own dialogues to Plutarch, Apuleius, and the Platonic commentaries.

Teaching Expertise
My teaching centres on the Ancient Greek language, Greek Drama, and Greek ideas of all kinds, along with the ways in which literature chooses to debate ethical and political questions.

Administrative Expertise
I have acted as Head of the Department of Classics, and later as Head of the School of Liberal Arts (2002-05). I have sat on a variety of committees, and have been especially involved in the delevopment of the post 2005 BA degree. I have been the convenor of this degree on a number of occasions.

Collaborations
Professor Harold Tarrant has always worked in and around Plato and Platonism in the ancient world, particularly in areas where literature and philosophy intersect. This continues to be Professor Tarrant's principal interest, as evidenced by his role as an active member in both the International Plato Society and the International Society for Platonic Studies.
