Department of Classics

Javal Coleman



Ancient and Modern Slavery, Gender and Sexuality, Ancient Law, Intellectual History, Comparative History.


I earned my BA in History, with a minor in Classical studies and a minor in Latin, from the University of North Texas in 2020. I am currently a Ph.D student in Classics. I am primarily interested in intellectual history and the history of slavery from a global perspective. When I am not translating Greek and Latin or reading secondary scholarship, I am preparing abstracts for conferences and looking for opportunities to connect with other scholars of color. I am currently preparing an article on issues of masculinity in Cicero's Pro Murena
