Professor Nathaniel Jones delivered the paper "Greek Art in Augustan Rome: Discouse, Dedication, and Reflection" at the 25th annual Theoretical Roman Archaeology Conference, which was held this year at the University of Leicester, UK.
Our increasingly image-rich culture makes the study and thoughtful interpretation of the visual arts central to a liberal arts education today. Art History & Archaeology courses address global histories of arts and visual culture from antiquity to the present. Students engage in the research, analysis, and critical interpretation of art as they question the roles of creativity and imagination across cultures. In doing so they prepare for a broad range of careers, ranging from positions in higher education, museums, and arts administration to business, social work and law.
