Biography

Elizabeth Baynham is a Senior Lecturer in Classics at the University of Newcastle, having received her doctorate from the Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand. Her primary research interests are in the areas of Greek history, Greek and Roman historiography and Greek and Roman art; in particular, the reign of Alexander the Great and his Successors. She has published three books, one sole authored, the others co-edited. One of her co-edited books (with A. B. Bosworth) Alexander the Great in Fact and Fiction (Oxford, 2000) was the result of an international symposium; Alexander the Great, History and Romance held at UON in July, 1997, which was funded by an ARC Strategic Research Initiative Grant for 20k.

Baynham's articles have appeared in Classical Quarterly (Oxford) as well as European and North American journals, and she has contributed chapters to many edited collections of thematic studies. She has been invited to present public lectures and graduate seminars in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the United States and South Africa.

She has supervised four UON RHD candidates to completion, and two from Macquarie University as an Adjunct (2012 and 2014), and she was appointed the Panel Chair in Classical Studies and Archaeology for the prestigious Undergraduate Awards, Dublin, Ireland (2015).

She is currently engaged in three projects in collaboration with other international scholars:

i. an edited book with Assoc. Prof. John Walsh (Univ. Guelph), Selling Alexander; Propaganda in the Era of Alexander the Great and his Successors (Taylor and Francis; formerly Routledge, due 2019)

ISBN: 9781405102162 The letter of invitation is included below: Date: Wed, 16 Jul 2003 22:02:59 -0400 To: Elizabeth Baynham Dear Professor Baynham: I have been commissioned by Blackwell Publishers to produce for them a Companion to Greek &Roman Historiography, and I am writing to invite you to contribute to this volume...My aim in the volume is to bring together the very best scholars who have worked on Greek and Roman historiography over the past thirty years. I have chosen contributors because I admire their work and I think that they have something fresh to say; I believe, moreover, that they can write in a way that is accessible to classical scholars, to scholars in other disciplines (especially non-ancient history), and to the interested general reader. I would like the volume to be a first port of call for those interested in the historiography of the classical world.... Given your own expertise, and your wonderful recent book on Curtius, I am very much hoping that you would be willing to contribute an interpretative reading on Curtius....With all good wishes, Yours sincerely, John Marincola
