Anna Boozer's current research investigates the migration of peoples, goods and ideas across the borders of imperially controlled regions in order to understand how ordinary people experienced the Roman Empire. She is particularly interested in how divergent categories of identity-such as gender, ethnicity, status and age-affected modes of self-representation under Roman rule.
