In April 2023, Carole Raddato, the world’s premier photographer of classical antiquity, offers three lectures—her first in North America—on how she has planned, researched, and is now realizing a 21-year project to document the wide-ranging journeys of the restless Roman emperor Hadrian (reigned 117-138), following his footsteps precisely 1900 years later.
To accompany this tour, this virtual exhibition was created by Carole Raddato and curated by Jacqueline Giz (Rutgers SAS/HC '23, MA candidate in Art History), with the collaboration of Francesca Giannetti (Digital Humanities Initiative of the Rutgers University Libraries) and Sebastian Hierl (Drue Heinz Librarian of the Arthur and Janet C. Ross Library of the American Academy in Rome).
