The Department of Classics is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Jordan Pickett as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Late Antiquity, beginning in August 2017. Dr. Pickett received his Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania’s Program in the Art and Archaeology of the Ancient Mediterranean World in 2015. His dissertation, “Water after Antiquity in the Eastern Mediterranean: the Afterlives of Roman Hydraulic Infrastructure (300-800 CE),” reflects his many research interests in cities and urban history, ancient infrastructure, the environment, and the ancient economy in the Roman, Late Antique, and Byzantine periods of the Eastern Mediterranean. He has field experience in Italy, Turkey, Ukraine, and Greece. We look forward to him joining our Department in the Fall.
