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. Graduate students will submit regular weekly reading responses, have two short presentations, lead an assigned discussion, and have a longer final project. Cross-list: HART 355. Mutually Exclusive: Cannot register for HART 555 if student has credit for HART 355.
