Evan Allen

Ph.D. Student in History of Art


Evan’s studies are focused primarily around the art and architecture of the Roman provinces during the Imperial Period, especially borderline contexts. He considers both the conceptualization and representation of frontiers and geography in antiquity as well as the archaeology of provincial cities and fortifications in order to consider how these unique geographical zones expand our understanding of Roman identities and cultural memories under the empire. He’s also interested in archaeological media (including digital visualizations and photography), contemporary practices of memorialization, and the reception of antiquity throughout the modern era. Evan received his BFA in Architectural History from the Savannah College of Art and Design (2014) and his MA in the History of Art from the University of Pennsylvania (2016).
