Biography

Joanna Mundy is a Ph.D. candidate in Roman art and archaeology. As a graduate student at Emory University, she has focused her study on ancient Roman and Greek art and architecture. She developed her interest in digital humanities, working with digital images for the Emory Visual Resources Library from 2007-2010 and has expanded that interest through her graduate research work. She participates in archaeological excavations yearly. Her dissertation explores the relationship between the built domestic environment and social behaviors in the lives of the inhabitants of urban houses, domūs (pl.) and insulae (pl.), in the city of ancient Rome in the first to fifth century CE.
