- The Ancient Economy
- Global and comparative history
- The reception of Greco-Roman Culture in European Civilisation
My research is situated at the interface of ancient and world history. It is focused on exploring historical comparisons between the Roman and other pre-colonial land-empires, especially the Mughal Empire of India, to suggest new ways of conceptualising the anatomy of Roman power. Topics include taxation and tribute, patrimonial lordship and the notion of Universal Empire, cosmopolitan high-culture as well as trade and economy.
