Jake Morton, Assistant Professor of Classics, has been awarded a Loeb Classical Library Foundation Fellowship for the 2021-2022 academic year. This grant will support work on his upcoming monograph, “The First Roman Invasion of Greece: Where they went, who they were, and why it matters,” which explores a groundbreaking interpretation of Roman actions in Greece between Rome’s initial invasion in 200 BC and the peace terms imposed in 167 BC. Novel methodology – a combination of topographic study, philology, and comparative history and anthropology – will be employed to argue for a new understanding of both Rome’s shifting foreign policy and developing cultural identity in this key period in Mediterranean history.
