Bethel College Presents “Visualizing Archaeology: The Importance of the Artist in Reconstruction and Analysis” Second Lecture in the Fall 2007 Colloquia

November 16, 2007 at 3:00 p.m. 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.
