Emma Dyson

I am a fourth-year PhD student specializing in the history of Greek philosophy. My dissertation, on Greek biographies of philosophers, examines biography as a mode of philosophical communication. I am interested in the convergence between philosophy and literature, and I have a particular focus on Neoplatonism.

I received my B.A. in English and Classics from the University of Southern California with a thesis on allegorical interpretation of Vergil in Servius, Boethius, and Fulgentius.
