Fields: Ancient Rome, Historiography

I am Professor of Classics and current Chair of the department.  My most recent book is Empire and Memory.  The Representation of the Roman Republic in Imperial Culture (Cambridge 2005).  My current project, tentatively titled Genius urbis. The city of Rome in Latin historiography, investigates when and how the urban spaces, buildings, and monuments of Rome figure in (primarily) Sallust, Livy, and Tacitus.  My overarching interests lie in the intersection of history and literature, especially in the imperial period.  For a full list of publications and projects, as well as various dissertations I have supervised or am in the process of supervising, please see the CV on my website (listed below).
