Why Museums Sometimes Lie - Elizabeth Marlowe (Colgate University)

Friday, February 8, 2019

Goldwin Smith Hall, G22
232 East Ave, Central Campus

Elizabeth Marlowe's research and teaching examine the relationship between artistic forms and ideological content in the art of the ancient world. She has published three articles on the Emperor Constantine’s monuments in the city of Rome (one of which won the Art Bulletin’s Arthur Kingsley Porter Prize). Marlowe continues to work on the relationship between 4th century imperial monuments in the city of Rome and the monumental remains of previous eras. You can also see her talk about the Arch of Constantine on an episode of an eight-part TV series that aired a few years ago on the History Channel.
