Dylan Kelby Rogers graduated from Tulane University in 2008, where he majored in Classical Studies, Greek, and Italian. Working with his adviser, Professor Susann Lusnia, he wrote his Senior Honors Thesis entitled, The Roman Lares: Public and Private Cult. In 2010, Dylan completed his Masters degree at UVa under the direction of Professor John Dobbins. The Pleasure of Water: The Nymphaea of Pompeii, his masters thesis, explores the domestic nymphaea of the city of Pompeii, with particular attention to their placement in the home, decoration, and overall meaning in the post-earthquake period (after 62 CE). Currently working as a PhD student, Dylan plans on writing his dissertation on monumental water features of the Roman Empire, examining the differences between public and private displays of water.
Dylan's fieldwork experience includes Pompeii (Porta Stabiae Project, 2009), Hacimusalar Höyük, (Turkey), and Morgantina (Italy). Dylan is currently a research assistant for the Rome Reborn Project at the University, studying the monumental fountains of the city of Rome. Major research interests of Dylan include the display of water, Roman domestic religion, Roman gardens, the topography of the city of Rome, and the reception of Antiquity from the Renaissance through the modern period; other research interests outside of Classical Archaeology include Medieval Rome and Italy, such as the twelfth century pavements of Cappella Palatina in Palermo, on which Dylan is currently writing an article.
