Beyond the Rhetoric: Towards a Topography of Women's Activities in Late Archaic & Early Classical Athens

Dr. Lisa C. Nevett (University of Michigan)

Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7PM in the Freeman Auditorium (205 Woldenberg Art Center)

LISA NEVETT’s area of expertise is Greek and Roman antiquity with particular interest in material culture as a source for social history. To date, her research has focused on domestic architecture, using the construction, decoration, and articulation of space within Greek and Roman houses to shed light on broader social questions. These included the development of the Greek city, relationships between men and women within Greek and Roman households, and patterns of interaction between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples at the fringes of the Greek and Roman worlds. She has been involved in archaeological field projects in Greece, Turkey, Libya and Britain. She is Professor of Classical Archaeology at the University of Michigan.
