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.
