Join us as we welcome Dr. Lakshmi Ramgopal, a Roman historian and Assistant Professor of History at Columbia University as part of our Classic and the Global Lecture Series. Dr. Ramgopal will explore how Romans and non-Romans living along the western coast of the Black Sea adapted to the changing mechanics of imperial administration and Roman citizenship in the second and third centuries CE using epigraphic evidence for intermarriage and worship of the emperor from this region. The presentation's material comes from her in-progress book, Romans Abroad: Associations of Roman Citizens, which studies the logic of interaction between Romans and non-Romans in non-Roman communities around the empire.
