The title for this lecture references a series of court opinions in 1901 that marked a decisive turn in the United States practice of what has since become known as differentiated citizenship. Working backwards from this historical conjuncture, I will examine the appearance of systems of differentiated citizenship in the Greco-Roman Mediterranean and comment on their reception in several modern colonial (and postcolonial) contexts.
