Noah Segal is a Visiting Lecturer in Classics. He earned his PhD in Classics with an emphasis in Ancient History here at UCSB in 2019. He also has an MA in Classics (UCSB) and a BA in Classics and Ancient History (The Ohio State University). His dissertation, “Military Achievement and Late-Republican Aristocratic Values, 81-49 BCE,” examines the cultural renegotiation of the value of martial valor and glory – traditionally foundational parts of elite identity and legitimacy – during the last generation of the Roman Republic. In addition to Roman Political culture his interests include Roman rhetoric and oratory, historiography, philosophy (particularly Roman Stoicism), and legal history.
Currently, Noah is working on two articles dealing with the Roman Triumph and how it was viewed by the aristocracy in the first century BCE. Noah will be teaching a wide variety of courses this year and encourages anyone curious about enrolling to get in touch with him.
