Corruption in the Ancient Roman Word: a study on aristocratical competition and rethorical representation of alterity

The researcher will join an outstanding research group in Brazil, connected in a national network, the LEIR, that stands in Portuguese for Laboratory for the Research on the Roman Empire. The group comprises an enthusiastic team of professionals with extensive expertise and state-of-the-art on the Antiquity, integrating researches located in various Universities in Brazil with strong international connections. The work will be developed in one of our main groups, settled at the Federal University of Ouro Preto, Minas Gerais. The main interest of the research is the study of corruption in its more varied fields (economic, moral, political, legal, ethical, literary, etc.) with a particular focus on the provincial elites and the rhetorical representation of Roman aristocracy and the traditional values attached to them. It is expected from the candidate a project concerning a specific aspect in this broad theme of corruption in the Roman world, generating cooperation within our research group.

The Federal University of Ouro Preto

Universidade Federal de Ouro Preto - Federal University of Ouro Preto (UFOP) is a higher education and research institution located in Minas Gerais State, southeastern Brazil. It was founded on August 21st, 1969, as a consolidation of two significant preexisting institutions:

Escola de Farmácia - School of Pharmacy (1839), the first School of Pharmacy in Latin America, and Escola de Minas - School of Mines (1876), founded by the French mineralogist Henry Gorceix and the first Brazilian institution aimed to teach Mining, Metallurgy, and Geology.

In addition to Escola de Minas and the Escola de Farmácia, UFOP covers all areas of knowledge in 13 academic units, distributed across four campi (located in the cities of Ouro Preto, Mariana, and João Monlevade). The main campus is located in Ouro Preto, a multicultural city with a vast calendar with some of the biggest cultural and artistic events in Brazil. It was the first place in Brazil to be considered by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage. UFOP comprises 142 research laboratories (in 2018 its patent number 130 was registered), approximately 300 outreach projects (community engagement), 12 libraries (including a rare books library from 18th and 19th centuries), a Center of Arts and Conventions, a Movie Theater, and some museums, as the Museum of Pharmacy and the Museum of Mineralogy.
