Today we continue to explore modern constructions of east and west with Thierry Petit, who discusses the origins and significance of the Sphinx in the ancient Mediterranean.
On Episode #10 of the Peopling the Past Podcast, we are joined by Susan Matheson, the Molly and Walter Barreis Curator of Ancient Art at the Yale University Art Gallery.
Listen in, as we discuss old age and the ways in which the elderly are depicted in ancient Greek art. Notably, Susan Matheson takes us through the varying portrayals of elderly men and women and how these differences manifest across discrete media, especially vase painting and sculpture.
On this episode of the Peopling the Past Podcast, we talk with Dr. Jennifer Stager, an Assistant Professor at Johns Hopkins University in the Department of History of Art, whose research interests include color and materiality, feminisms, multilinguality and cultural exchange, ancient Greek and Roman medicine, and classical receptions.
Join us, as we delve into Dr. Stager’s exciting research on polychromy in the ancient Mediterranean, especially the use of colour on Greek statues.
