DR. DIANA NG, ASSOC. PROFESSOR OF ART HISTORY, UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN-DEARBORN The city of Perge in the Roman Pamphylia (modern Turkey) boasted a number of highly decorated urban amenities—like city gates and fountains—that were typical in the Roman Empire. This talk will examine these buildings and their sculptural decoration in the context of the heated intercity rivalries of the 2nd and 3rd centuries CE. Private patrons and public priorities merged together to make a case for Perge’s primacy among its regional rivals, relying on the illustrious legendary beginnings of the city and its widely known cult of Artemis. Diana Y. Ng is an Associate Professor of Art History at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, specializing in Roman art and archaeology. Her interests are centered on questions of civic and elite identities, benefaction, and memory. This year, she is an Associated Scholar with the Department of Art History at Willamette University (Salem, Oregon).
