Roman Historian joining CNERS July 1

Katharine P.D. Huemoeller, receiving her PhD this summer from Princeton University, is a Roman historian who focuses on the non-elite in antiquity, gender and sexuality, and life outside the major urban centers of the ancient world. Her work engages all available evidence for the Roman world, from Roman poetry to legal documents on papyri to material culture. On the material side, she is currently involved with the American Excavations at Morgantina: Contrada Agnese Project in central Sicily. She will be coming to Vancouver from Italy where she has spent the past year as a Rome Prize fellow at the American Academy in Rome working on her current project, an examination of the sexual dimension of Roman slavery. She will join the Department as of July 1, 2016. Welcome, Katherine!
