Timothy Power is an associate professor of Classics at Rutgers University. His research has focused largely on matters relating to the lyric poetry and drama of early Greece, in particular their music, performance, and social and religious contexts. His 2010 book, The Culture of Kitharôidia (Center for Hellenic Studies/HUP), is a study of the popular Greco-Roman musical genre of lyre-singing from the age of Homer through the reign of the emperor Nero. In more recent work, he has also examined the extra-musical roles of sound, voice, and listening in ancient Greek religion. His current book project is devoted to questions concerning the relationship between singing, dramaturgy, mimesis, and verisimilitude in Athenian tragedies of the fifth century BCE.
