- The Phyllis Fay Horton Professor in History & Classics and the College, as the Phyllis Fay Horton Distinguished Service Professor.
Jonathan M. Hall is the youngest scholar ever to win the Charles J. Goodwin Award for Merit from the American Philological Association for best book in the field. His book Ethnic Identity in Greek Antiquity (Cambridge University Press, 1997), for which he won the award, provides a sober look at an important but sticky topic - the question of what it meant to be ethnically Greek. Hall also is the author of Hellenicity: Between Ethnicity and Culture (University Of Chicago Press, 2002) and the forthcoming The Blackwell History of the Archaic Greek World, 1200-479 BCE. Hall has been at Chicago since 1996.
