Joshua R. Vera is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of History at the University of Chicago. He specializes in the religions, cultures, and societies of the Roman Empire, and focuses on the archaeological record to discern changes in everyday life and ritual practice. In his dissertation, he seeks to determine what happened to the religious identity of the Athenians after the first century BC, when the Romans conquered their city and redeveloped their sacred landscape.
