Research Title: The Roman Military Presence in Phrygia and Galatia and its Impact on Urban and Rural Communities
Dr. Uzunoğlu has recently obtained his PhD at the Department of Ancient Languages and Cultures at Akdeniz University, with a dissertation entitled, “Water Constructions in Western and Southern Asia Minor from the Epigraphic Evidence.” His research interests include Greek and Latin Epigraphy, the military and economic history of Phrygia and Galatia in the Imperial Period, imperial estates and agriculture, the Roman army, and Romanization in Asia Minor. He is currently a visiting scholar at the University of Oxford and conducts a research project aiming to produce a corpus of the inscriptions from Akmoneia in Phrygia. As an ANAMED fellow, he investigates the Roman military presence in Galatia and Phrygia during the Principatus from various aspects, bringing both the unpublished and published epigraphic evidence together. In this research, he examines any connection between the Roman army and the richly attested phenomenon of Romanization in these particular regions. His project also concerns questioning the impact on the long-term subsistence economies of local populations of the repeated plunder of estates by Roman soldiers in the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE, as well as understanding how effective were the reactions of the imperial administration to the complaints of the peasants.
