Nadya Williams

Fields of study: Greek and Roman military history, civilians and war, pedagogy
 
Dr. Williams was born in Russia, and grew up in Israel. These experiences have given her a passion for learning and teaching about world history. She is a military historian of the Greco-Roman world, and the author (together with Nicola Foote, ASU) of Civilians and Warfare in World History (Routledge, 2017). She is in the beginning stages of a project on Augustine of Hippo's philosophy of history, and is currently planning a conference on catharsis as a category of historical analysis, to take place Feb. 25-27, 2021. The conference Call for Papers can be found here: https://classicalstudies.org/scs-news/cfp-cathartic-history
 
Recent course offerings include the introductory survey of World History to 1500, as well as upper-level and graduate courses on Greek and Roman Warfare, Ancient Israel, Greek Religion, and Historiography.
