PhD (University of Toronto)
Bio and Research
John Fabiano holds a PhD in Classics from the University of Toronto and specializes in social and economic history of the Roman world, particularly of the Later Roman Empire. His current research focuses on the interaction between state institutions and non-elite populations in urban contexts.
While his work primarily engages with epigraphic and legal texts, the nature of his research is such that it meets with broader interests in Roman historiography, historical demography, and environmental history. Dr. Fabiano has also participated in archaeological projects in Pompeii and Portus, spent time as a fellow at the Kommisson für Alte Geschichte und Epigraphik in Munich, and conducted research at the British School at Rome. More recently, he has become interested in the application of technologies to the study of epigraphy.
