Jeremy Stitts

My historical focus is in late antique and early medieval Europe. I am primarily interested in post-Nicaean Christianity and Roman imperial authority in the late antique western Mediterranean. My research centers on how the bishops, senators, and inhabitants of the city of Rome and the western peripheral capitals of Milan, Ravenna, and Trier competed over the residency of the emperors in the 4th and early 5th centuries. This holistic examination gives us a new perspective on cities, power, and Christianization in Late Antiquity.

Emily Chesley

Emily Chesley is a historian of the late ancient Mediterranean. She is interested in women and gender in the Syriac world, the relationship between religion and society, and cross-pollinations between Greek, Syriac, and Arabic Christianities. 

Kathryn Carpenter

My research focuses on the history of science, technology, and the environment in 19th and 20th century North America, and the ways in which all three intersect. I am also interested in methodologies including oral histories and using digital tools for evaluating and presenting information.
