Lauren Caldwell's research is in Roman history, particularly social history. Her book, Roman Girlhood and the Fashioning of Femininity, was published by Cambridge University Press in 2014, and is the first in-depth study of female adolescence in the Roman Empire. Professor Caldwell is currently at work on biographies of the Roman jurists for the Encyclopedia of Ancient History project (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers) and a chapter in A Cultural History of Youth (ed. Christian Laes and Ville Vuolanto) for the Bloomsbury Cultural Histories series.

At Trinity, she teaches an array of courses on the history of the ancient Mediterranean, including survey courses on Greek history and Roman history, seminars on Alexander the Great and the Provinces of the Roman Empire, and in 2018-2019, a first-year seminar on Medicine and Health in Ancient Rome. In collaboration with the Classics department at Trinity, she also teaches Latin and ancient Greek language courses and advises senior undergraduate research projects on topics ranging from Greek physicians and patients to Roman educational practices.
