Hello 🙂 I am new to Humanities Commons. Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Dr. Julia Mattes M.A. I am a researcher in prehistoric archaeology (and occasionally in art history). Due to a broad education and a liking for ‘thinking outside the box’ I enjoy to work in different fields of academia and have a wide-ranging expertise. I am a member of the Department of Archaeology and Ancient History, Uppsala University as well as an independent scholar and holder of a number of grants. So far I mainly worked with European prehistoric cult and religion, ancient diseases, climate change, ancient art and art history.

I develop research projects and studentships with collaborative partners in Higher Education and the wider archaeology sector for MOLA (Museum of London Archaeology), the only archaeology unit that is a UKRI Independent Research Organisation. I was previously Business Development Executive (Heritage) at the University of Leicester, developing collaborative research, consultancy, CPD (Continuing Professional Development) and contract research projects between organisations in the heritage sector and academic staff in the Schools of Archaeology & Ancient History, History, Arts, and Museum Studies. These knowledge exchange activities ensure that teaching and research into heritage and the historic environment continues to inform, and be informed by, professional practice.

…Ph.D. Candidate, Ancient History…
…B.A. in History, summa cum laude West Virginia University, 2013

B.A. in Religious Studies, summa cum laude, West Virginia University, 2013

M.A. in History, awarded with distinction, North Carolina State University, 2016

Ph.D. in Ancient History, Yale University, in progress (anticipated 2022)…

I am a doctoral candidate in Yale University’s combined program in ancient history. I first graduated from West Virginia University in 2013 with two bachelor’s degrees (history and religious studies), then from North Carolina State University in 2016 with a master’s degree in history.   My dissertation project, titled “Religio Licita: Empire, Religion, and Civic Subject, 250-450 CE,” explores the question of normative religion and its role in shaping the subjects of empire in the third, fourth, and fifth centuries. Drawing on an array of primary sources (including historiography, oratory, legal texts, numismatics, and material culture), I argue that the late Roman state became increasingly concerned with policing the boundaries of permissible religio and employed a variety of coercive strategies to enforce conformity. My dissertation project examines the development and articulation of this normative discourse and its consequences for the empire’s subjects.   In addition, I am interested in gender and sexuality studies in the Roman and late Roman worlds, social and cultural histories of antiquity more broadly, and exploring various critical approaches to ‘doing’ ancient history. I also enjoy thinking about various strategies for teaching the ancient world in a modern university classroom.   Please feel free to write me at carl.rice@yale.edu.

MemberVictoria Leonard

Victoria Leonard is a postdoctoral researcher in late ancient history, as part of the ERC-funded project ‘Connected Clerics. Building a Universal Church in the Late Antique West (380-604 CE)’, at Royal Holloway, University London and the Austrian Centre for Digital Humanities (ACDH-ÖAW), Austrian Academy of Sciences (Österreichische Akademie der Wissenschaften). Victoria’s role within the project involves compiling data on clerical connections and using adapted digital tools to examine and visualize evolving clerical networks in the late ancient and early medieval western Mediterranean. Victoria’s research focuses on four main areas: i) social network analysis and digital humanities; ii) ancient and early medieval historiography; iii) ancient religion, particularly conflict and coercion; iv) and gender, sexuality, violence, and theories of the body in antiquity. Her monograph, In Defiance of History: Orosius and the Unimproved Past, is under contract with Routledge. The work explores Paulus Orosius’s historiographical approach to the deconstruction and reconstruction of a narrative of the past through the prism of Christianity. Victoria has published articles in Vigiliae Christianae, Studies in Late Antiquity and forthcoming in Gender and History. Victoria is also a Research Associate at the Institute of Classical Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London. She is a founding member, former co-chair, and steering committee member of the Women’s Classical Committee (UK). She teaches across the disciplines of ancient history, archaeology, and religious studies. She has convened modules in material approaches to the ancient world and ancient religion, and has held teaching positions at Bristol and Cardiff universities.
