Katharine P.D. Huemoeller
I am currently working on my PhD in Classics as part of the Program in the Ancient World and earning a certificate from the Program in Gender and Sexuality Studies. I have focused on Greek and Roman social history, Roman law, Roman provincial studies, and gender in the ancient world. I particularly enjoy using material textual evidence and cross-cultural approaches to history. My dissertation considers the sexual and reproductive experiences of the enslaved in the Roman world and the role of sexual exploitation in the slave system. Prior to coming to Princeton, I earned a BA from Middlebury College, worked at the National Women’s Law Center in Washington, DC, and completed the post-baccalaureate program at Georgetown University.
