Kevin Uhalde

Kevin Uhalde received his Ph.D. in History and the Program in the Ancient World at Princeton University and his B.A. in History and Classical Civilization from Mary Washington College. He teaches courses on Europe and the Mediterranean region during Late Antiquity and the Early Middle Ages, early Christianity and the medieval church, and two interdisciplinary courses for seniors: Rome in the Dark Ages and Philosophy of History. He has directed and taught Ohio University's Fall Program in Rome, as well as teaching in the College of Arts & Sciences' Scholars Program. He is a faculty member of the Center for Law, Justice & Culture and has served on Faculty Senate, as Director of Undergraduate Studies and Advising Coordinator in the History Department, and two years as president of Ohio University’s chapter of the American Association of University Professors.

He has published or delivered scholarly papers on topics ranging from Roman justice to medieval ovens, dark age coinage to dark age bishops, and the spoken language of the Basques (his paternal ancestors) to the formulaic language of ancient oaths. His first book, Expectations of Justice in the Age of Augustine (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2007) represents his ongoing interest in how intellectuals, including religious professionals and secular officials, handled the ordinary failures of society. Among other awards, his work has received a Rome Prize and two fellowships from the American Council of Learned Societies. His current work is on the cultural and intellectual history of penance in Late Antiquity.
