Lecture: "The Parthenon Sculptures and the Policies of Pericles"
Location: Palamountain Hall: Davis Auditorium
Time: 5:30 PM - 6:30 PM
Jenifer Neils, Ruth Coulter Heede Professor of Art History and Professor of Classics and the author of the definitive "The Parthenon: From Antiquity to the Present" (Cambridge, 2005) and "The Parthenon Frieze" (Cambridge, 2001), will deliver the annual Classical World lecture. Prof. Neils will investigate the new elements in the Athenian Parthenon's sculptural program and how they might relate to some of the legislation passed under the leadership of Pericles. This lecture will include an overview of the Parthenon and its decoration and will demonstrate how the new themes depicted here can be related both to the legislative policies of Pericles and as well to issues of gender and identity.
