Faculty

The faculty participating in the Program come from both sponsoring departments and related programs. Both the Classical Studies Department and the History Department are highly ranked in national surveys, and both include distinguished professors who teach Greek and Roman history or related fields. Faculty from the Classical Studies and History Departments working on classical and Hellenistic Greek history include Sara Forsdyke (historiography, political thought), Ian Moyer (non-Greeks and Hellenism, Egypt, ethnicity and culture, religion and magic), Terry Wilfong (Egypt, papyrology), Sharon Herbert (classical archaeology in the Near East), Christopher Ratté (Classical Archaeology, Greek and Roman art and architecture), and Arthur Verhoogt (Egypt, papyrology). Faculty working on Roman history include Bruce Frier (Roman law, social and economic history, demography), David Potter (historiography, religious cults, public entertainment, warfare), Ray Van Dam (Greek East, later Roman empire, Mediterranean studies, religion and society) Celia Schultz (Roman history, Roman religion, Latin literature), Ellen Muehlberger (Early Christian history and literature, Coptic and Syriac studies, religion in late antiquity, theories of the religious imagination), Lisa Nevett (Archaeology and iconography of domestic space in the Greek and Roman world) and Nicolas Terrenato (Roman Republican Archaeology, Roman Imperialism, Early Rome, Field survey methods). Since some fields, such as the Greek East, can be included in both Greek and Roman history, many professors' interests overlap different periods.
