Eelco Glas' research concentrates on Graeco-Jewish literature in the Roman world, particularly the works of Flavius Josephus. His doctoral dissertation investigates the problem of Flavius Josephus’ dual role as author and character in the Bellum Judaicum. It offers the first systematic literary analysis of this aspect of Josephus' work, asking how Josephus' presentation of his character be explained in the context of the Bellum as a whole, as a history written in Greek and addressing a local audience in first century Rome.

Eelco is currently working on a new project that explores how ancient Jewish and Christian intellectuals coped with their experiences as migrants through their literary activities.
