Spaces for Diplomacy in the Roman World

This three year Leverhulme Early Career Fellowship project examines the production of space in order to understand diplomacy as a social practice in the Roman world, from the mid-Republic to High Empire. The study draws out the value of considering both physical and social space as a means to understanding the place of diplomacy in the Roman imagination, and therefore Roman attitudes towards their position as a political power in the Mediterranean.
