Marcaline Boyd specializes in Greek historiography and history and in particular ancient tyranny. Her research seeks to understand the relationship between the formation of tyranny according to the Greek political imagination and the variety and hybridity of tyrants found in historical authors. In her work, she combines study of literature, history, and material culture, with a special emphasis on epigraphy. Professor Boyd’s research interests extend to Archaic and Hellenistic Greek poetry as well as Latin elegy. In Fall 2016, she is teaching language courses in Latin and Greek, and a course in translation on Greek tragedy. She presently serves as faculty advisor to the Delta Tau chapter of Eta Sigma Phi.

Professor Boyd received her B.A. in Ancient History and Classical Archaeology, and French from Franklin and Marshall College, and her M.A. and Ph.D., both in Classics, from Florida State University.
