Kimberly Cassibry (2009, PhD; “The Allure of Monuments in the Roman Empire”) is Associate Professor of Art at Wellesley, where she was awarded the college’s Pinanski teaching prize in 2019. Her research focuses on the art and architectural history of the ancient Mediterranean. With support from the Getty Foundation and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, her publications have explored glass cups depicting famous charioteers and gladiators (Theoretical Roman Archaeology Journal, 2018), Roman arch monuments dedicated as diplomatic gifts (American Journal of Archaeology, 2018), and ethnic stereotypes of Celts in Greek and Roman art (Art Bulletin, 2017). Her book Destinations in Mind: Portraying Places on the Roman Empire’s Souvenirs is under contract with Oxford University Press. She is also developing a digital humanities platform for the study of Roman arches and a second book project on the impact of empire on the art of ancient France.
