C. Brian Rose "is a Classical art historian and archaeologist specializing in the material culture of Asia Minor during the Hellenistic and Roman periods. He excavated for five years at Aphrodisias, and for fourteen years at Troy, where he has been Head of Post-Bronze Age excavations since 1990. The results of the Troy excavations have been published in eleven volumes of Studia Troica, for which Professor Rose serves as editor in charge of Greek, Roman, and Byzantine studies. Much of his work has concentrated on the political and artistic relationship between Rome and the provinces, and this is especially apparent in his book on Julio-Claudian portraiture (Dynastic Commemoration and Imperial Portraiture in the Julio-Claudian Period, Cambridge University Press, 1997). He has served as an Academic Trustee of the Archaeological Institute of America, Chair of the Advisory Council of the American Academy in Rome, and Vice President of the American Research Institute in Turkey. He has been awarded grants and fellowships from the American Academy in Rome, the Samuel Kress Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the American Research Institute in Turkey. In 1994 he and his colleague Manfred Korfmann of the University of Tuebingen received the Max Planck Prize for scientific research, administered by the Alexander Humboldt Foundation. His recent seminars at the University of Cincinnati have dealt with Roman Topography, the Archaeology of Troy, Augustan Rome, and Roman Republican sculpture, architecture, and coinage. He is currently finishing the final publication of the architecture and architectural decoration of the Roman houses at Troy." [1]
