In this episode, we are joined by Katie Petrole, Director of Education at the Nashville Parthenon and a former Steinmetz Family Foundation Museum Fellow at Corinth Excavations in Ancient Corinth, Greece.
Join us, as Katie brings the Parthenon to life through a discussion of its to-scale replica in Nashville, guiding us through how an ancient Greek might have experienced the space and the ways in which the Nashville Parthenon can serve as an effective resource for thinking about the Greek world more broadly.
