I work on Roman legal and institutional history, particularly in the eastern provinces, epigraphy of the Roman world (both Latin and Greek), and on institutional developments in the Greek poleis of the Hellenistic and Roman period, especially in Asia Minor and the Black Sea region. I am also interested more broadly in comparative legal history and anthropology.
I am preparing for publication a monograph on Law in Roman Asia Minor (133 BC–AD 212), somewhat loosely based on my doctoral thesis, and have published on a range of related topics, including a survey chapter on 'Greek Law under the Romans' in the Oxford Handbook of Ancient Greek Law. A more distant plan is to work on social and institutional history of the province of Lycia-Pamphylia (an exciting region in the south-west of Asia Minor) to the beginning of the fourth century AD. With Hannah Skoda and Tom Lambert, I have co-edited Legalism: Property and Ownership, the fourth volume in a hugely exciting interdisciplinary series (Oxford University Press, 2017).
I am also an associate editor of the Supplementum Epigraphicum Graecum with responsibility for the Black Sea and Danubian regions, and serve on the editorial board of the Vestnik drevnej istorii (journal of ancient history of the Russian Academy). Occasionally I blog on research-related topics at https://georgykantorblog.wordpress.com/.
