Willson Center Presents Inaugural Research Seminar at Cortona

Willson CenterThe Legacy of Classical Antiquity: Re-visioning the Past,

September 18-19, 2014

The inaugural research seminar, The Legacy of Classical Antiquity: Re-visioning the Past, explores the legacy of classical antiquity as the nexus of the visual and cultural history of Italy and its modern interpretations. The conference offers a unique opportunity to examine material culture and artifacts in the Museo dell’Accademia Etrusca e della Città di Cortona (MAEC), whose collection represents a cross-fertilization of Etruscan and Roman civilizations.

Featured speakers are Andrew Wallace-Hadrill, director of research in the Faculty of Classics at the University of Cambridge; Nigel Llewellyn, head of research at Tate; Penelope Davies, division chair in art history at The University of Texas; and Mario Erasmo, professor of classics at UGA.
