Master of Arts

San Diego State University - College of Arts and Letters

I am interested in the study of the frontiers of the Roman Empire from the first - sixth centuries CE - particularly in the Near East, approaching the subject from a world historical perspective. My thesis seeks to explain aspects of Roman trade and administration in Roman Arabia (modern-day Jordan). This includes explaining Rome's interaction with local sedentary and nomadic populations in antiquity, and the interactions of these populations with their environment. My evidence consists of both ancient and modern historical scholarship and material evidence (archaeology).
