Kit Morrell

 

Kit Morrell joined the University of Melbourne in June 2019 as holder of an ARC Discovery Early Career Researcher Award. Her DECRA project, 'Reforming the Roman republic', examines the idea and practice of reform in the late Roman republic, with a special interest in attempts at systemic reform, long-term reform programmes or policies, and non-legislative means of pursuing change.

Previously she was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Amsterdam, investigating the impact of the Augustan marriage legislation on Roman women's legal and property rights as part of the OIKOS Anchoring Innovation project. She has also taught at the University of Sydney, where she completed her PhD in 2014. Kit's publications include a monograph, Pompey, Cato, and the Governance of the Roman Empire, published by Oxford University Press in 2017, and The Alternative Augustan Age (OUP, 2019), co-edited with Josiah Osgood and Kathryn Welch. In addition to her DECRA research, she is currently co-editing a volume on 'The Rule of Law in Ancient Rome'.
