Professor Katherine Harloe is Director of the Institute of Classical Studies in the School of Advanced Study (University of London), the UK’s national centre for the advancement of humanities research. She is an interdisciplinary classicist whose research spans the history of classical scholarship and the reception of Greek and Roman antiquity in European cultures from the eighteenth century to the present, with an accent on questions of historical method, sexuality, gender and race. She is a leading expert on the eighteenth-century scholar Johann Joachim Winckelmann, the so-called ‘father’ of art history, and is also known for publications on historiographic method in thinkers ranging from Thucydides and Pausanias to Gotthold Ephraim Lessing and Hannah Arendt. She is also principal investigator of ‘Beyond Notability: Re-evaluating Women’s Work in Archaeology, History and Heritage in Britain, 1870 - 1950’, a major UK AHRC-funded collaborative project which explores the potential of linked open data to recover and represent historical evidence of women’s work buried in archives.
