Curriculum Vitae

Research Interests

Patrick Kent’s research interest is Roman history, with a focus on the relationship between the Romans and their Italian allies during the Republican period. Primary interests include the way in which the Roman army and alliance system developed out of earlier Italian military and political traditions, as well as processes of integration, social interaction, and the growth of states. Secondary interests include ancient Greek, Near Eastern, and Byzantine history. His teaching encourages students to engage with ancient sources in a way that builds critical analysis and writing skills while creating a broad understanding of larger historical trends.
