Title: USF Ancient Studies Center Lecture - Beauty, Victory, Death & Marriage in Archaic Athens
Date: Thu. Feb 02, 2012
Time: 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Description: Dr. Susan Rotroff, Archaeological Institute of America Norton Lecturer and Professor of Classics at Washington University explores the story behind two well-preserved Archaic statues discovered outside Athens in 1972. The statues are outstanding examples of the art of the period, but raise questions about the identities of the individuals they represent and why the statues were deliberately buried. Dr. Rotroff will discuss the ways in which the statues reflect interconnected themes of youth, beauty, athleticism, marriage and death in the society of 6th-century Athens. The event is hosted by the Tampa Bay Archaeological Institute of America and is co-sponsored by the USF Classical Society, the department of History and Phi Alpha Theta.
