Few individuals from history have captured the imagination quite like Alexander the Great (336-323 B.C.). He is most famous for his vast military success. He is so monumental a figure, however, that he also had a large impact on the development of every aspect of Ancient Greek Culture, including Ancient Greek art. Professor Palagia will discuss this fascinating topic.
Speaker: Dr Olga Palagia is Professor of Classical Archaeology at Athens University in Greece. After completing her undergraduate studies in Greece, she studied for her D.Phil. in Classical Archaeology at the University of Oxford. Throughout her distinguished international career she has published widely on Greek art and archaeology and is today one of the foremost experts in the field. She has held visiting professorships and fellowships at leading academic institutions around the world.
