Description: Ceramics represent one of the most numerous classes of surviving ancient materials and their painted decoration can provide insights into social and cultural histories. This course provides an overview of pottery of the ancient Mediterranean world spanning from the Bronze Age to Roman period (ca. 3300 BCE – 400 CE), with a primary focus on ancient Greece. We will examine a broad history of ceramic production through the vases at the Menil Collection, including production techniques, decoration and subject matter. We will consider archaeological contexts, major themes, and debates in the field as well as modern museum settings. Cross-list: HART 555. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 355 if student has credit for HART 555.
