On April 14, the UCLA Classicist and Digital Humanities pioneer Diane Favro will be here to give a talk called “From Brick to Marble: Did Augustus Caesar Really Transform Rome?”  (2014 Harrison).  Favro has used advanced modeling software to reconstruct a model of Augustan Rome in its entirety to evaluate the claim that Caesar turned Rome from a city of bricks to a city of marble.  You can get a sense of this project at http://newsroom.ucla.edu/stories/from-brick-to-marble:-did-augustus-caesar-really-transform-rome . She also helped to develop the Digital Karnak.
