Individual and Group: The Construction of Identity in Imperial Group Portraits



The project is dedicated to the recording, analysis and evaluation of the use of group portraits as a tool of political discourse in the Roman imperial period. Three work packages are currently planned: a monograph on the representation of princes in the early imperial period; a diachronic study of group portraits in the political discourse of different societies; an exhibition on the functioning and perception of group portraits.
