The 2nd Annual M.I. Rostovtzeff Lecture Series

About the Series

Michael I. Rostovtzeff, a Russian ancient historian, came to the U.S. after the Russian Revolution and taught for many years at Yale University as Sterling Professor of
Ancient History. Rostovtzeff’s prodigious energies and sprawling interests led him to write on an almost unimaginable range of subjects. ISAW’s Rostovtzeff series
presents scholarship that embodies its aspirations to foster work that crosses disciplinary, geographical, and chronological lines.

The lectures will be published by Princeton University Press.
