Roman Art and Archaeology My research interests may be considered diverse, but are definitely interconnected. I am primarily interested in visual representations of non-elites in the late Republic and early Empire. Much of my academic career has focused on the visual vocabulary of non-elite funerary
monuments with an emphasis on gender.
My new research project "The Art of Performance Along the Bay of Naples (44 BCE-79 CE)", explores the role of small-scale theatrical performances in the gardens of ancient Roman houses. I am delving into new territory with the use of digital reconstructions to explore possible staging environments. The overall goal is to demonstrate how performance in a garden setting complete with mythic sculpture, wall paintings, mosaics and architectural features can break down perceived social barriers between audience and performers alike.
