Elena Isayev is Associate Professor of Ancient History at the University of Exeter. She is the author of Inside Ancient Lucania: Dialogues in History and Archaeology (2007) and co-editor of Ancient Italy: Regions without Boundaries (with G. Bradley and C. Riva, 2007). In support of her research into ancient mobility she has held the Davis Fellowship at Princeton University, New Jersey and for her current work on hospitality and asylum she has been awarded a Historical Research Centre Fellowship at the Australian National University, Canberra. She also works in current refugee contexts, including with Campus in Camps in Palestine, and has created the initiative Future Memory which works with communities where there are tensions.
'… highly important and innovative … Isayev's book is undoubtedly a major contribution to the entire field of Classics. Apart from making its case quite brilliantly, it breaks with a number of self-imposed limitations and restrictions (of disciplines, methods, periods, regions …) that have shaped and continue to shape much of Classical scholarship. This book is groundbreaking in the way it engages with the past by taking up current research from other fields and by formulating new models that will stimulate further debate - hopefully also beyond the scope of ancient Italy. It is worth adding that the book, although very scholarly, might also prove useful for undergraduate teaching, as it is written in a very understandable language … In short, it is a must-have for all scholars in this field, and a book which, to my eyes, ranks among the works that have offered a sweeping (and controversial) vision of Mediterranean mobility and connectivity, from Braudel to Horden and Purcell and D. Abulafia.' Bryn Mawr Classical Review
