I am a Winthrop junior (class of 2019) from Westchester, NY, concentrating in History and pursuing a secondary in Comparative Study of Religion. I have diverse interests across places and time periods, but am especially attracted to Jewish history, Ancient Roman history, and imperial history more broadly, particularly the interactions between civilizations.  I’ve always loved studying history and thought that the best stories often come from real life. As a sophomore I've only recently declared my concentration, but since I was pretty set on my choice coming into Harvard I've already had the chance to take a range of classes within the department. I’ve greatly enjoyed my experience so far and would be very happy to answer any questions regarding the concentration.
