Imogen Herrad researches incidences of insubordination in classical Sparta, especially successful ones. She explores both the motivations for which Spartiates decided to break rules or disobey orders, and the reasons that caused the authorities not to punish them, despite Sparta's well-known reputation for discipline and obedience. 

Her other research interests include rule-breaking and deviance more widely, as well as gender and women's history, specifically women's work and economic activities.
