The program welcomes three new core faculty members:
William Aylward, Classics Department
Lauren Kroiz, Art History Department
Sissel Schroeder, Anthropology Department
Aylward focuses on art and technology in the ancient Mediterranean, teaching a class in the spring entitled "Eureka! Technology and Practice in the Ancient World". Kroiz studies the visual and material culture of the United States, especially notions of race and gender. She is currently editing her forthcoming book, Cocktails, Composites, and "Ellis Island Art": The Struggle for an American Modernism, for which she won the 2010 Phillips Book Prize. Schroeder researches the spatial distribution and sociopolitical identities of ancient Native Americans in the Midwest, working on sites in Kentucky and Wisconsin.
