“Wrathful Battle, Bloody War: Trauma, Narrative, and Material Culture in Ancient Greek Warfare”
Professor de Vivo writes: “My work has centered upon the individual experience of battle and how that experience is translated into narrative; I focus upon material culture because, besides being an archaeologist, I found that the many meanings embedded within objects often provide individuals (and societies) with the means to make sense of what they have undergone, and more importantly, to justify both battle and warfare not only through narrative but through memory as well.”
This event is held in connection with the current semester’s GSem, “War and Peace”, being taught by Annette Baertschi and Astrid Lindenlauf.
Talk 4:30pm in Carpenter 21: All are welcome.
A celebration of the work of Mark Castro, graduate student in History of Art, on the exhibition that has just opened at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, “Journeys to New Worlds: Spanish and Portuguese Colonial Art from the Roberta and Richard Huber Collection” (see http://www.philamuseum.org/exhibitions/777.html).
Mark will give a brief talk at 5 p.m. in Carpenter 21; we shall then repair upstairs to the Quita Woodward Room for refreshments.
Last semester, we marked the start of the year with a delightful lunch. But chilly days call for more warming celebrations. Accordingly, please come for drinks and snacks in the Dorothy Vernon Room next Tuesday, January 29, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Discussion and planning process for 10th anniversary celebration.
