Emily BaragwanathEmily Baragwanath has captured an Alexander von Humboldt Fellowship that will enable her to research at Germany’s University of Heidelberg for over a year.

“I am very excited and honored to have received a Humboldt Fellowship,” Prof. Baragwanath said. “It provides me with a tremendous opportunity not only to pursue my own research, but also to engage with scholars in my field at a university that is one of the oldest and most esteemed in Europe.”

From January 2013 to June 2014, Prof. Baragwanath will work on her monograph, provisionally titled Women, Narrative, and Agency in Xenophon. She will examine Xenophon’s representation of women, how it relates to larger issues of friendship and leadership, and what it reveals about his approach to history, narrative, explanation, and literary invention.
