Internship Opportunities at Partner Institutions

Tuesday, April 16 – Juan Sebastian de Vivo

Department of Classics, NYU

“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.
