They will discuss research in progress and compare approaches to race and globalism in the Roman Empire and thirteenth-century Venice. Among the questions to be addressed are: How did these societies interact with and include diverse populations? How did they understand ethnic and racial difference? What are some visual and narrative ways they used to represent diversity\, and what problems / questions do these raise?  What do we learn by comparing / contrasting these two case studies and what are the ramifications for our understanding of race and globalization today? \n URL:https://canes.wisc.edu/event/race-and-globalism-in-the-roman-empire-and-medieval-venice-a-conversation/ LOCATION:Humanities Seminar Room\, University Club\, Room 212 CATEGORIES:Front Page,Lecture END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20191007T123000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20191007T131500 DTSTAMP:20191021T065817 CREATED:20191004T182853Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191004T182924Z UID:2313-1570451400-1570454100@canes.wisc.edu SUMMARY:Speak Latin!

Produced by machines using economical parts and shareable through online repositories\, 3D-printing and its associated processes such as digital photogrammetry offer the specialist and student of ancient architectural history compelling tools for documentation and analysis. In addition\, their products offer alternatives to intrusive and often irreversible on-site physical rebuilding and restoration measures\, generally known as anastylosis. Case studies for this presentation come from the author’s experiences and fieldwork conducted at the archaeological sites of Sardis and Aphrodisias in western Asia Minor\, modern Turkey. This talk also considers some of the challenges involved in taking on a 3D-printing project for making precise replicas of objects\, big or small. \nSponsored by the Archaeological Institute of America. \nFree and open to the public. \n URL:https://canes.wisc.edu/event/revenge-of-the-plastic-parthenons-3-d-printing-in-the-study-of-classical-architecture/ LOCATION:Rm L140 Elvehjem Building CATEGORIES:Front Page,Lecture END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20191024T173000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20191024T190000 DTSTAMP:20191021T065817 CREATED:20191001T135202Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191015T134729Z UID:2294-1571938200-1571943600@canes.wisc.edu SUMMARY:Attributes and Identity in Palmyrene Funerary Sculpture DESCRIPTION:Join us for a lecture by Dr. Maura Heyn\, UNC-Greensboro. \nDr. Heyn’s research focuses on funerary sculpture in the Roman empire\, particularly the sculpture from the Syrian city of Palmyra. She is interested in issues of social identity\, cultural change\, ancient clothing and dress\, and the archaeology of the body. Her current book project\, Provincial Life\, Roman Death: The Funerary Portraiture of Palmyra\, analyzes the multifaceted ways in which funerary sculpture mediated social relations in the aftermath of Roman conquest. Other research interests include the mural decoration of the Temple of Bel in Dura-Europos\, and the significance of hand gestures in Roman funerary portraiture. \n  \n URL:https://canes.wisc.edu/event/lecture-featuring-maura-heyn/ LOCATION:104 Van Hise Hall CATEGORIES:Front Page,Lecture END:VEVENT BEGIN:VEVENT DTSTART;TZID=America/Chicago:20191028T123000 DTEND;TZID=America/Chicago:20191028T131500 DTSTAMP:20191021T065817 CREATED:20191004T182853Z LAST-MODIFIED:20191004T182925Z UID:2318-1572265800-1572268500@canes.wisc.edu SUMMARY:Speak Latin!
