  • About

    Jessica received her B.A. (English) from Truman State University in 2003, and her M.A. (Classical Studies) from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 2006. She studied Greek during the summer of 2007 at the University of Texas at Austin and continued her language studies at the University of Pennsylvania until the end of 2008. Jessica's interests include the political and military history of the mid to late Roman Republic, and ancient slavery from the mid 3rd century BCE to the 4th century CE. In particular, she will focus her dissertation on the social memory of defeat in the Roman world (from the middle republic through the "fall" of the empire) and is working on a project examining the role of various emotions in the works of Greek and Roman Historians.
