Kelly Myers received her MA in Literature from the University of New Hampshire and her PhD in Rhetoric, Composition, and the Teaching of English from the University of Arizona. She researches the role of emotion and transformation in the ancient Greek concept of kairos. In particular, she examines the connection between Kairos, the god of opportunity, and Metanoia, a veiled female figure who personifies the missed moment. Kelly traces representations of the Kairos-Metanoia partnership from The Greek Anthology to the Renaissance emblem books, establishing the foundation for a rhetorical theory of opportunity and regret.
