Alisha Sanders is a first-year M.A. student specializing in ancient Roman and Greek art. She received a B.A. in Art History from Bowling Green State University, graduating with University Honors in 2016. Alisha's many interests in the ancient world include Greek ceramics and statuary, classical mythology, and art of the Roman Empire, particularly in its early stages with art from the Julio-Claudian and Flavian dynasties. This interest informed her undergraduate thesis on the potential spreading of political and religious ideals through the use of archaistic influences in reliefs and statues during the reign of Augustus Caesar. As an M.A. student, Alisha will continue studying her interests in how ancient art helped to convey political and social ideas in Roman and Greek cultures.
