Humanities Center Lecture on 'Love and Desire: Examples from Ancient Art and Archeology'
On Tuesday, Feb. 19, Dr. Richard Freund will review some of the greatest images of all time and what they meant in the Iron, Persian and Greco-Roman periods, with special emphasis on the Byzantine period.
Freund's talk, which is part of the Spring 2013 Humanities Center Lecture Series on "Love and Desire," will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the Mali 1 lecture hall (Dana 201). The event is free and open to the public.
Freund is the Maurice Greenberg Professor of History and the Director of the Maurice Greenberg Center for Judaic Studies at the University of Hartford, and a Faculty Fellow of the Humanities Center. He directs six archaeological projects on behalf of the University of Hartford in Israel. Freund is the author of eight books and hundreds of articles. His most recent book is entitled Digging through History: Religion and Archaeology from Atlantis to the Holocaust (Rowman and Littlefield, 2012).
An exciting line-up of scholars, performers and artists will continue on Tuesday evenings throughout the spring semester in the Humanities Center Lecture Series on Love and Desire, led by Dr. Nicholas Ealy of the Department of Modern Languages and Cultures in the College of Arts & Sciences.
All students, faculty, and staff, as well as members of the community, are invited to explore love and desire in disciplines from the sciences to the arts, media, psychology, history, film, philosophy, and literature. All lectures begin at 7:30 p.m. in the Dana 201/Mali 1 lecture hall, and are free and open to the general public.
