Konstantinos (Constantine) Karathanasis' research interests revolve around archaic and classical Greek literature and its historical context, addressing questions regarding the interaction of politics with art. In 2017, he wrote a thesis on sophrosyne in Aeschylus, exploring how a term of the Greek aristocratic vocabulary was appropriated by the Athenian democratic theater of the early 5th century BC. Currently, Constantine is focusing on Old Comedy, investigating its political function and the means it employs to achieve it.
