Meeting Location: 
Building 110-112
Workshop: 
Approaches to Data Scarcity in Ancient History
Meeting Description: 
About the speaker:
Currently a member of the Society of Fellows at Columbia University, Dan-el Padilla Peralta studies the history of the Roman Republic and Empire, with a particular focus on trends in religious practice. He received his PhD in Classics from Stanford University in 2014 and holds previous degrees from Princeton and Oxford. While at Stanford, he held the university’s Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship, intended to reward and encourage work across the disciplines. Dan-el is firmly committed to the application of social-scientific methods to the study of ancient history and believes the two domains have much to offer each other.
 
Meeting description:
In his talk, Dan-el will explore the problem of collecting and using data for the study of the Roman empire, the issues of economic modeling, especially in the religious (e.g. temple building) and the military.
