Stratis Papaioannou studies post-classical Greek literary and cultural history, especially late antique and Byzantine writing in its social context. His wider interests are in premodern book and letter-writing cultures, literary aesthetics, and concepts of gender, self, and desire. Papaioannou has published on Gregory of Nazianzus and, especially, Michael Psellos, while his work is divided in interpretative study, critical edition, and translation.
A native of Trikala Greece, Stratis Papaioannou studied Greek literature at the University of Athens, Greece (B.A. 1995) and Byzantine literature and culture at the University of Vienna (D.Phil. 2000). Before joining Brown's Department of Classics in January 2006, Papaioannou taught post-classical Greek at The Catholic University of America (2000-2005). He has received research fellowships from Dumbarton Oaks (1999-2000), Centre for Advanced Study at the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters in Oslo (2002-2003), and the Humboldt Foundation (2005; Freie Universität in Berlin). He has also taught at the Centre d'études Byzantines, néo-helléniques et sud-est européennes at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris (June 2009). During the summer, Papaioannou teaches Medieval Greek and Palaeography at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and at Dumbarton Oaks, Washington D.C.
