AIA Talks: Women in Ancient Greek Art, September 8


Welcome!  The archaeology lecture series will have two  two talks by Dr. Anthony Mangieri on September 8. Using Greek vases, the inscriptions on them, and often colorful Greek literature, drama, and poetry, he explores what we can reconstruct about women's lives in the classical period. 

His day talk examines vases featuring such famous and infamous female figures as Helen, Klytaimnestra, Kassandra, Iphigeneia, and Danae. His evening lecture on virgin sacrifice is the focus of his current book-length study.
