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, as well as the representational media used in the archaeological and art historical projects. With an emphasis on photographic and photorealistic imaging technologies from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, he investigates the visualization of archaeological practices and artifacts from their initial documentation to their eventual popular and academic reception. He is also interested in the politics of the archive, digital pedagogy, and contemporary practices of memorialization. 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). He currently excavates at Pompeii, Italy as part of the Casa della Regina Carolina Project.
