Lectures by Kathleen Lynch

University of Cincinnati

Kathleen Lynch

Kathleen Lynch is Associate Professor of Classics at the University of Cincinnati, and has also taught at Washington University in St. Louis, Southern Illinois University, and the University of Missouri. She is a specialist in Greek pottery, particularly vase-painting and the social aspects of pottery, and has completed fieldwork in Albania, Greece, and Turkey. She earned her Ph.D. and her M.A. at the University of Virginia, after completing her undergraduate work at Boston University. She has published widely, and has received numerous awards, grants and fellowships for her work.
 
One of Professor Lynch's main publications is The Symposium in Context: Pottery from a Late Archaic House near the Athenian Agora, published as Hesperia supplement 46, 2011. This volume addresses for the first time a collection of pottery used at symposia that has been found in a domestic context in Athens (rather than a funerary context, which is more usual for such pottery). In the volume Professor Lynch discusses form, function, and context without ignoring the social aspects of Athenian drinking parties as well as other household activities.
