Combining her interests in historiography, performance theory, ancient and contemporary theater, Melinda Powers has published articles on the production and adaptation of ancient Greek drama, such as “Unveiling Euripides” which received the Philadelphia Constantinidis Essay in Critical Theory Award. Her book Athenian Tragedy in Performance: A Guide to Contemporary Studies and Historical Debates (University of Iowa Press, 2014) foregrounds critical questions about the tension between the study of drama as literature versus the study of performance and investigates the methodological problems that arise in some of the latest research on ancient Greek theatre. Her current book project Reclaiming Greek Drama on the Contemporary U.S. Stage is under contract with Oxford University Press.
