Before the Parthenon: the Architecture of the Archaic Acropolis

AIA Society Event: College Station

Wednesday, February 12, 2014 - 6:00pm

Location:
Geren Auditorium, Architecture Building B, Room 101, Texas A&M University
College Station, TX
United States

Lecture by Nancy Klein, of Texas A&M University.

Our modern view of the Acropolis is focused on the magnificent temple of Athena Parthenos, built under the leadership of the Athenian statesman Pericles in the 5th century BC. In the early 19th century AC, the fledgling country of Greece devoted itself to establishing a national identity that reflected its classical heritage. The Acropolis of Athens was central to this vision and became a symbol of the birthplace of democracy and the humanistic arts. While this vision reflects the acme of Athenian culture, it also eclipses thousands of years of human activity before and after the Parthenon. In the 19th century, efforts to free the classical monuments of the Acropolis from the overburden of later history saw the removal of many post-classical buildings and an excavation from modern ground levels to bedrock. An unexpected result of these excavations was the discovery of thousands of fragments of architecture, sculpture, pottery, and small finds from the early history of the Acropolis. Read more »

Sustainable Living in Bronze Age Crete

Location:

"Sustainable Living in Bronze Age Crete," a lecture by Jennifer Moody of the University of Texas at Austin, is slated for 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 10 in Langford C105 (Texas A&M University, College Station, TX). Moody will discuss the different climates of the Early, Middle and Late Bronze Ages on Crete (ca. 3000-1000 BCE) and the ways in which the ancient Minoans adapted both their architecture and agricultural strategies to reflect the changing environment. A native Texan, Moody has a doctorate in ancient studies. She specializes in the archaeology and environmental history of the Aegean, especially the island of Crete and is author of numerous scholarly publications, including "The Making of the Cretan Landscape" (Manchester University press 1996), which she co-authored with Oliver Rackham. In 1989 she was awarded a MacArthur Fellowship "for extraordinary accomplishments in prehistoric archaeology." The lecture is sponsored the College Station Society of the Archaeological Institute of America and by the Glasscock Humanities Center's Working Group in the History of Art, Architecture and Visual Culture at Texas A&M.
