Research interests

Tacitus, imperialism, space, military history, power, identity, discourse.

My PhD thesis, ‘People, Place and Power in Tacitus’ Germany’, examines how power in a variety of guises (military, political, environmental, rhetorical) is expressed in the Roman historian’s narration of Roman military activity there. I draw on passages from the Annals, Histories and Germania.
