Why do people collect things? How do collections relate to the people who made the objects, and those who found, bought, and assembled them together? What can collections of archaeological media reveal about past lives and our own University? In this seminar, we will explore these questions through the object collections stored and displayed in our classrooms, museums, and libraries at Cornell. Writing assignments will allow students to translate what they see and feel when engaging ancient art objects into writing, including a formal analysis, object biography, and gallery labels. Based on their own engagement with media related to the ancient Mediterranean world, students will curate an exhibition of an archaeological collection.
