Graduate Seminar: Why does Greek and Roman art and architecture matter?
Wednesday | 9:00 - 12:00pm
Our graduate seminar will be an experimental workshop. To get to know each other we will present our recent work (research, article, etc.) in a short question-and-problem-driven paper. This will provide the basis to discuss which questions and topics in the field of Greek and Roman art, archaeology and architecture we would like to explore.
To enhance cross-cultural debate we will invite Rahim Shayegan, Professor in Iranian and Director, Program of Iranian Studies (http://nelc.ucla.edu/person/m-rahim-shayegan/). If possible we will organise a trip to visit museum(s) with collections of classical and near eastern art – to study the real thing.
