Research/Creative Activity

Dr. Gatzke is a historian of the Roman world, with particular interest in the social and cultural identity of the Greek East under Roman rule. Her current work looks at how residents of Roman Anatolia (modern Turkey) used Latin, the language of the Romans, to distinguish themselves within their Greek-speaking communities.

Dr. Gatzke is also interested in the Hellenistic kingdoms of Anatolia (particularly the Pontic kingdom), as well as geographies of the ancient world.
