Jared Kreiner is excited to return to Christopher Newport University, where he received BAs in History and Classical Studies. He also received MAs in History from Salisbury and Chicago, and his PhD in History from the University of Chicago. At the core of his research, Jared is interested in how Rome interacted with and governed indigenous populations as well as the social and military history of the imperial Roman military. His current book project, Administration and Provincial Revolts in the Early Roman Empire, 31 BCE-68 CE, approaches indigenous revolts against Rome through the institutions ascribed by ancient authors as the cause of provincial revolts (census, taxation, conscription, and the military).
