Sarah is Assistant Professor of Roman archaeology in the Classics Department and a faculty member of the Cotsen Institute of Archaeology at UCLA. She grew up in Faribault, MN, and earned her BA in Classical Languages (Greek & Latin) at Carleton College. After a few years working odd jobs in Chicago, she went back to school and took her PhD in the Art and Archaeology of the Mediterranean World from the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. As an archaeologist Sarah has spent time abroad excavating and/or working in museums in Greece, Italy, France, Spain, and Portugal - she loves chatting about travel and the opportunities that academic research opens up for a person. Her research focuses on domestic space in the ancient Roman empire and the types of social interactions and hierarchies that manifest in these “private” spaces; she’s writing a book on late antique villas, and also working on several articles on enslaved children in Roman art. When she’s not working, Sarah enjoys knitting, yoga, singing musical soundtracks, and spending time with her family: her husband Sam, who teaches Latin at UCLA; their 3-year old daughter Sally; and their infant son Julian, aka Jude or “Judie boy” as his sister calls him. On weekends they like to visit coffee shops and bakeries, go grocery shopping (seriously!), hike, visit museums and parks, and explore all that California has to offer.
