This lecture by Eve D’Ambra, surveys the portraits of imperial women from the Flavians through Hadrian (late-first through mid-second century CE) to consider how their images stood apart or remained indistinct from those of the cohort of Roman women. A rich archaeological record of inscriptions, coins, and statuary is only beginning to be appraised (or re-appraised) by scholars interested in the “soft” power of court women, family dynamics, and women’s traditional roles in religion and patronage of the period.

I am very excited to announce that Rosa Chávez, a well respected Guatemalan Indigenous poet, will be coming to SUNY New Paltz! Her works discuss various intersecting themes such as indigenous rights, language, femininity, and sexuality. Rosa has been a very special part of my Study Abroad program and each year she has continued to have a profound impact on the students. We are thrilled to have Rosa’s warmth and wisdom in our campus and we hope you and your students are able to come!
A big thank you!! To the Center for International Programs, The College of Liberal Arts & Science and the Dean’s office for their constant support.
