in the Miller-Moore Academic Center Room 342, Chris Stackowicz, M.F.A.,
assistant professor of visual art, will speak on “Visualizing Archaeology: The
Importance of the Artist in Reconstruction and Analysis.” This lecture is part
of a lecture series put on by Bethel College.
Since 2001, Stackowicz
has worked with Professor Robin F. Rhodes at the University of Notre Dame on
The Greek Architecture Project at Corinth as his digital editor, archivist, web
designer and video specialist. These experiences have directed Stackowicz's
research into the role of the artist in the past, present and future in
archaeological research both in the field and in production. He will also be
discussing the images employed by archaeologists and how these images, both the
artists who created them and the technology used to create them, in some ways
direct the limits of field research.
