AIA Lecture series - "The Public Thing' Goes Public: Rome's International Image in the Second Century BCE"

Sarah Davies is an Assistant Professor in the Department of History at Whitman College. Her research and teaching interests include ancient receptions and international relations, in the Hellenistic period, in Republican and Augustan Rome, and with respect to Punic and Roman North Africa. Her current work investigates the second-century BCE origins of Rome’s “empire,” not only by exploring the international-level ideologies that positioned Rome as an emergent, pan-Mediterranean “state,” but also by tracking the evolution of a perceived turning point in the trajectory of Roman – and world – history: the year 146 BCE.
