Conference: "Texts and Monuments in Augustan Rome" in Rome, Italy - June 30-July 3, 2014

The aim of this summer’s international conference is to enlighten the relationship between texts and monuments in the Augustan city, giving particular (though not exclusive) attention to the Forum Romanum, an important city center often overlooked in scholarship on Augustan Rome. Investigating the relationship between the written Rome and the built Rome is nothing new; the last two decades have already seen important works by Ann Vasaly (1993), Catharine Edwards (1996), A.J. Boyle (2003), and Tara Welch (2005).
