Three of our PhD students have received research grants and fellowships for the summer of 2017 and beyond.
Professor Blevins specializes in ancient Roman and Greek art and architecture. Her research interests include the relationship between art, religion, and memory in the Roman and Greek world, the intersection of visual culture with issues of identity, power, and representation, the topography and built environment of sacred space, and cognition and visual culture. At Washington University Professor Blevins will teach courses on ancient art, including a freshman seminar, From Hercules to Harry Potter: Picturing Heroes in Ancient Greece, Rome, and Beyond. In connection with this seminar and her Roman Art and Archaeology course, in the Spring of 2017 Professor Blevins will curate an exhibition, (Re)presenting Heroes, Defining Virtue, in the Teaching Gallery of the Kemper Art Museum at Washington University.
