Petris Professor of Greek Studies and Professor of Ancient Mediterranean Art and Archaeology, has been invited as one of three guest speakers at the afternoon session of a public Study Day on the Nike (Winged Victory) of Samothrace at the Louvre, on March 28, 2015. Recently conserved and remounted, the Nike is among the most spectacular and most famous sculptures of ancient Greece. Joining him on the podium and for the subsequent debate - which promises to be lively - will be Professor François Queyrel of the École des Hautes Études in Paris and Professor Olga Palagia of the Department of Classical Archaeology at the University of Athens.
