Description: Jennifer Stager specializes in the art and architecture of the ancient Mediterranean and its afterlives. Her areas of focus include theories of color and materiality, feminisms, multilingualism and cultural exchange. Stager’s first book, "Seeing Color in Classical Art: Theories, Practices, Receptions, from Antiquity to the Present" (forthcoming Cambridge University Press), recovers period ideas of color as a phenomenon in ancient Mediterranean art. Stager analyzes the material colors of dyes, pigments, stones, and metals across the wider Mediterranean.
In Spring 2020, Stager launched the Antioch Recovery Project (ARP), an international collaboration that uses digital tools to analyze mosaics from the ancient city of Antioch (modern Antakya, Turkey, near the border with Syria). Her research will share about other museums, including the Baltimore Museum of Art, that like WAM, share in holding some of these Antioch mosaics.

This program is free and will be held in WAM's Cafe.
