Serena Crosson

Intermediality in imperial Roman material culture and literature; Roman mosaics and wall paintings; Roman Provinces

Serena is a Ph.D. candidate in the Classics department at Stanford University. She earned her BA in Classical Languages with high honors from UC Berkeley in 2012, and completed her MA in Classics with a concentration in Roman archaeology from San Francisco State University in 2016. She has conducted fieldwork at Vindolanda Roman Fort, and has extensively studied early Christian symbolism and literary reception in Romano-British mosaics. Her current research explores intermediality in Roman material culture; in particular, the interpretive nature of architectural space, real and imagined, in imperial visualizations of Classical literature, and the influence of literary genres within Roman visual traditions.
