Associate Professor of Classics (Ph.D., Yale)

She is the author of Lives Behind the Laws: The World of the Codex Hermogenianus, in which she explored Roman emperors’ responses to the legal problems of their ordinary subjects, as well as a number of related articles. Her current book project is an introduction to the Distichs of Cato, collection of Roman wisdom and advice that was one of the most-read and best known ancient Latin texts for over 1000 years. Professor Connolly regularly teaches courses on Roman imperial history, Pompeii, ancient science and technology, and Latin literature.

Peruzzi v1Bice Peruzzi

Assistant Professor

Ph.D. in Classical Archaeology, University of Cincinnati (2016)

Research Interests:  Art and archaeology of Pre-Roman Italy, in particular Etruria and Magna Graecia; pottery iconography; pottery technology; burial practices; identity in the ancient Mediterranean.

Bice is a Classical archaeologist specializing in the material culture of pre-Roman Italy. Her research focuses on the construction of cultural identity and the mechanics of cultural exchange in Apulia before the Roman conquest. Using artifacts –in particular local and imported pottery– as her main form of evidence, she aims to give a voice to individuals who would be otherwise mute, as they have left no written accounts and are only tangentially described in Greek and Roman sources. She has fieldwork and finds research experience in a number of sites in Italy (from Roman villas in Veneto, to Tarquinia’s necropolis, to Pompeii), in Greece, and in Turkey. She has published on Etruscans and Apulian tombs and on Corinthian pottery. Her current book project is a social biography of the inhabitants of Central Apulia. At Rutgers, Professor Peruzzi teaches courses on Mediterranean archaeology.
