Alexis CastorProfessorFranklin & Marshall College

My main area of research concerns the social history of jewelry in Greece and Etruria (1st millennium B.C.E.) Much of this subject focuses on women, but I also consider the role of jewelry in the life course of both sexes, and its use as a marker of social identities (sex, age, status, ethnicity, and ritual).

Alicia ColsonIndependent Researcher

I am an archaeologist and a ethnohistorian with a long standing research interest in the digital humanities and computing. I've undertaken extensive fieldwork in Canada, the UK, US, and Antigua. I'm currently developing projects in various places globally with colleagues, finishing a manuscript on the past, present and future of higher education in the US, and writing articles on various topics in archaeology and ethnohistory.

Roman spectacle;
I am interested in the symbols and rituals of power in the Roman Empire, with particular focus on the deployment of gender and material culture in imperial politics. I am also intrigued by representations of ancient Rome in the modern world, in film, literature and art.

Almut-Barbara RengerProfessorFreie Universität Berlin

Drawing upon a wide range of sources and theoretical perspectives in the fields of religion and literature, Professor Renger’s work focuses on the creation and dissemination of myths, legends, idols and icons in a variety of ancient and modern cultural contexts. Primarily, she is concerned with the Western classical tradition, with numerous articles and books that explore the continuing effects of Ancient Greek and Roman mythology and religion throughout history up to the present day. This work consistently centers on the use of mythological themes and motifs in literary texts, film and popular culture as well as in modern and contemporary forms of esotericism and alternative religion.

Another research area investigates dynamic tensions in the history of religions between Asia, Europe and the U.S. In particular, she is interested in cross-cultural interactions and their impact on religious agency as manifested both in society and literature. Of specific concern in this connection are charismatic teachers and leaders, their self-conception and attraction to followers, as well as the topics of discipleship and the transmission and transformation of religious and philosophical knowledge. Related to this, she specifically examines cultural transformations of Buddhism in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Alyson RoyAssistant ProfessorUniversity of Idaho

My work focuses generally on the Roman Republic, Roman military history, and numismatics. I am working on my first book project, drawn from my dissertation, in which I trace a series of developments within Roman material culture that I argue are rooted in the triumph. In particular, I explore the circulation of plundered objects and purchased art symbolically linked to the triumph into and around the city of Rome through first the triumphal parade and then through display in public spaces and in private homes. I then trace the dissemination of triumphal imagery in the form of trophies, inscriptions, and coins into the provinces as part of a material expression of Roman power and as an ongoing part of the processes of conquest.
