J.R. Howard Hall

Gordon Kelly is an Associate Professor with term in Humanities. He received a Ph. D. in Classical Studies from Bryn Mawr College in 1999, with a concentration in Ancient History. He has taught courses on Latin and Greek language and literature, Roman and Greek History, Classical Mythology, Roman Law, and the family in the Roman World. Professor Kelly’s research has focused on the connection of politics, law, and social history in the Roman Republic, and he is the author of the forthcoming book, A History of Exile in the Roman Republic (Cambridge University Press). He is also interested in how ancient military practices reflect the social ideals of the Greco-Roman world, and has served as a rower on the reconstructed ancient Greek warship Olympias during three sea-trials in the 1990s.
