More information about Adriaan Rademaker


Adriaan Rademaker participates in the research group Language of Literature, a research group that focuses on “the linguistic means that signpost the structure of Greek and Latin texts and mark the cohesion between segments of the text.” His recent research within this group has focused specifically on Thucydides, and studied the phenomenon of ‘immersion’ and ‘emotional involvement’ in climactic passages from book VII, as well as the persuasive function of selected passages of war narrative.
Secondly, he is a member of the Groupe de recherche sur l’aspect en grec ancien in Paris. Current research activities of the group focus on the future in Ancient Greek.
Moreover, he is an active member of the Leidse Werkgroep Rhetorica. The recent first joint publication of this group is a collection of essays (in Dutch) on pathos in political speeches, in the arts and in literature.
