Research Keywords:

Roman society and history, esp. 3rd cent BCE -1st/ 2nd CE; Roman intellectual and cultural history; historiography; religion; epistolography; Roman comedy; city of Rome.

Research Interests:

My principal research interests lie in Roman history of the republican and early imperial periods. I have published on historiography, epistolography, and comedy and on topics including religious, cultural, social, and political history. I am currently interested in finding ways to describe Roman society without relying on such categories (religious, cultural, political etc.), and am writing a book (Approaching Roman Society) that attempts to do this through a series of case studies on topics including graffiti and Cicero's letters.
