dr. C. van Regenmortel
I read Literae Humaniores (BA) at Wadham College, University of Oxford (2009-2013) followed by a Research Masters degree in Ancient History at the Amsterdam Centre for Ancient Studies and Archaeology (2013-2015). I then returned to the United Kingdom to study for a Ph.D. at the University of Leicester (2015-2019), which I completed while holding the Macmillan-Rodewald Studentship at the British School at Athens (2018-19).
My research centres on the ancient economy, in particular on the structural changes witnessed in the Hellenistic period. In my Ph.D. research, I applied a labour history perspective to the increased use of paid soldiers from the reign of Philip II of Macedonia onwards, and argued that this development culminated in the emergence of a large-scale military labour market during the Wars of the Successors. The existence of such a market ought to have affected other sectors of production, and I am increasingly interested in the labour history of the Hellenistic Age more generally, questioning in particular where changes in labour relationships may have occurred and how these related to the wider economic developments.
At Groningen, I teach a wide variety of courses, predominantly related to the history of the ancient Greek world.
