Donna Zuckerberg is a classicist, writer, and Editor-in-Chief of Eidolon, an online publication committed to non-traditional classical scholarship that is feminist, personal, and fun. She is the author of Not All Dead White Men (2018), a study of the reception of Classics in Red Pill communities. Her writing has also appeared in Jezebel, the Times Literary Supplement, and The Establishment. Her second book is under contract with Harvard University Press.

Donna received her Ph.D. in Classics from Princeton University in 2014. Her dissertation, “The Oversubtle Maxim Chasers: Euripides, Aristophanes, and their Reciprocal Pursuit of Poetic Identity” won a Winkler Prize for its analysis of how Aristophanic parodies of Euripides influenced the development of Euripidean style. She has served as board member and Director of Communications for the Paideia Institute for Humanistic Study, which she co-founded in 2012.
