Hoogleraar Oude Geschiedenis

I am currently working on the following projects:

Les honneurs civiques/civic honours (with Dr. A. Heller, Tours)

This is an international colloborative project on development and uses of honorific inscriptions and civic honours in the Greek cities under Roman rule. It was initiated in 2012. In this context we have organise workshops in Paris in 2012, Athens, Tours  and Groningen in 2013 and a final conference in Tours in 2014, leading to the publication of a major colloborative study. For more information:

Saxa Loquuntur

I maintain a website on Greek epigraphy. It is a portal with brief instructions and useful links, intended for students at the University of Groningen, and the Netherlands Institute of Athens.

The Greek city after the Classical Age
This is is an international research project on the history of the Greek city after the Classical Age that I have directed together with Prof. R. Alston of Royal Holloway, University of London. This project was funded by the Leverhulme foundation in London. This project has resulted in a series of international conferences. A selection of the papers is being published in our series Groningen-Royal Holloway studies in the Greek Cities after the Classical Age.

Greek athletics and festivals under Rome. 
I have published a series of articles on the social, cultural and political meaning of Greek sport and festivals under Roman rule. I am currently reviewing these for a book: Powerful bodies: Greek athletics, festivals and elite identities under Roman Rule.

Monuments and power in Roman Termessos
I have been publishing a series of articles as part of project on the epigraphy and the history of political, cultural and festive life of Roman Termessos. These studies will be reviewed for a book length study on the microhistory of this small city in Anatolia.
