Teodoro Rennó Assunção
Teodoro Rennó Assunção received an M.A. in Classical Studies from the University of São Paulo (Brazil) in 1990, and a Ph.D. in History and Civilizations from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS), Paris, in 2000. The articles that he wrote in French and that are now republished on the CHS site date from that time and from 2009, when he had a post-doc in Paris (see below). He is currently Associate Professor on the Faculty of Letters at the Federal University of Minas Gerais (Belo Horizonte, Brazil). His master’s thesis was a study of death in the elegies of Archilochus, Callinus, and Mimnermus, and he wrote his doctoral thesis on the character of Diomedes as an alternate model of heroism in the Iliad. As a post-doc at the EHESS in 2009, his research and publication focused on food in the Odyssey, in particular, the complex theme of feasting in relation to marriage. At present, he is working on a Homeric topic related to feasts, namely, bathing, as well as on Heraclitus and his role in the work of the great Brazilian surrealist poet, Murilo Mendes. Assunção has also published on Solon and Tyrtaeus, age classes and the phases of life, the criticism of poetry in Plato’s _Republic_ and _Ion_ (forthcoming), etc. He has also worked outside the realm of Ancient Greek literature, writing articles on modern and contemporary French and Brazilian literature and three books of essays and short stories.
