Academic and Library Careers





I have a current Master's in Library Science from the University of Maryland at College Park's College of Information Studies, emphasizing digital content and services and stressing the analysis and service of users' information needs. I have taken courses in information structure (including Library of Congress and DDS cataloging), Web design, the theory and practice of reference services, user needs and behavior, user instruction, library ethics and public policy, international and comparative librarianship, and the academic library, including the impact of the digital revolution on academic libraries.


Academic Career


I have a B.A. in Classical Studies from Bryn Mawr College and a Ph.D. in Roman History from Columbia University. I read Latin and Greek, as well as French, German, and Italian. The area of my doctoral research was the ancient Roman army, focusing on Roman military society and Roman law: soldiers were not permitted legal marriages with women during service, and their children were illegitimate. My dissertation employed literary and documentary sources, including Latin inscriptions and Greek and Latin papyrus documents. It was since published as The Marriage of Roman Soldiers (13 B.C. - A.D. 235): Law and Family in the Imperial Army. My second book, Roman Military Service: Ideologies of Discipline in the Late Republic and Early Principate, places Roman literary depictions of the army in social and ideological context. I have also edited the Roman half of an encyclopedia, Conflict in Ancient Greece and Rome: The Definitive Political, Social, and Military Encyclopedia.
