The Institute’s Winter/Spring Program and our University of Waterloo Intern Arrives

The long awaited Winter/Spring lecture program of the Institute is out. Save the dates!!!

The first lecture is on Wednesday, January 30th with Professor Gerry Schaus (Wilfrid Laurier University and President of the Board of Directors of CIG) speaking on the Archaic period black-figured pottery from Laconia that was found in Miletus. This evening we will also cut the CIG pita. Who will find the flouri???

Coin from Pherai depicting Enodia on horseback
Our Alföldi-Rosenbaum Fellow, Gino Canlas (University of British Columbia), will speak about his dissertation research on the Thessalian deity Enodia and her spread in the Greek world on Wednesday, February 27th.

Finally, on Wednesday, April 10th, Professor Alison E. Barclay (Saint Mary’s University) will explore center and periphery relationships in the eastern Mediterranean as depicted in the art of the Geometric and Archaic periods.

The program has a wide-ranging and interesting topics by Canadian scholars. Who could ask for more, eh?

Welcome Alisha!!!
This winter’s University of Waterloo undergraduate intern arrived in Greece on Friday. Alisha Adams will be with us for three months assisting us on digitizing our fieldwork archives. She is a 4th-year Classical Studies and Biomedical Sciences double major with a minor in Anthropology. She is interested in Greek medicine and the lives of ancient women, as well as the Hellenistic baroque style of art. Her experience in Greece will help decide which specific direction to pursue in graduate school. So please welcome her warmly on the 30th to the Athenian archaeological community!
