  • About

    Bram is a doctoral student from Maarssen, the Netherlands. He graduated with a B.A. in Classics and a minor in German Language and Literature from the University of Mississippi (2009) and holds a certificate in Greek and Roman History from the University of Michigan. In 2013-2014 he was the Bert Hodge Hill Fellow at the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA).                  

    Bram is currently writing a dissertation on the relationship between the opera minora and the opera maiora of the Roman historian Tacitus (“Tacitus on Principate and Empire: from the Agricola to the Annals,” supervised by Prof. D.S. Potter).

    His other principal interests are in republican and early imperial Roman history and historiography; Greek history and historiography (esp. Herodotus and Thucydides); literary techniques of characterization; Greek and Roman epigraphy; social memory and representation of the past.

    Long-term projects focus on various aspects of Tacitus (including the description of public spectacle in the Annals) and on the concept of discord in Roman historiography and beyond.
