Jason C. Phillips is a PhD candidate in History.  His dissertation, "Was Rome Not Beautiful Too?: Modern Germany and the Legacy of Ancient Rome" examines the complex relationship between German intellectuals in the nineteenth century and how ancient Rome could be both a fascination and a foil in their quest to craft a new national identity.  His work challenges the prevailing view that ancient Rome was seen as the eternal enemy of the German-speaking lands in the nineteenth century.  His expected completion date is May 2019.
