Lucinda Kirby, a PhD candidate from the University of Liverpool, joins us as the first Alan Rodger Postgraduate Visiting Researcher.
Lucinda is studying the administration and social application of law in fourth-century Egypt. Her sources are largely papyri, whose number is ever increasing with new excavations and newly published texts. Her work examines provincial administration, the administration of local justice and access to justice, and the higher offices of provincial government and their dissemination of imperial law.
During her time in Glasgow, Lucinda will studying a collection of papyri held in the University's Special Collections.
The post of Alan Rodger Visiting Researcher was founded in memory of Lord Rodger of Earlsferry (1944-2011), Justice of the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, and graduate of the University of Glasgow.
