Introduction of Amy Miranda

Amy Miranda (PhD, History of Art, Johns Hopkins University, 2020) is an art historian of the ancient Mediterranean world and has also trained as a classical archaeologist (MA, Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, 2013). She specializes in the art and architecture of the Roman provinces in her research, teaching, and museum work. Her dissertation research considered case studies from across the Roman Empire interrogating their architecture, sculpture, and mosaics by utilizing a theoretical framework she derived from spatial theory. As a pre-doctoral fellow at the Walters Art Museum (Baltimore, Maryland) she analyzed the collections provincial material, where Amy first realized her excitement for archival work and the sculpture of Palmyra.
