Teaching with Art: Art and Identity in the Roman Near East

February 8, 2014 - June 29, 2014

Associate Professor of Classics Ben Rubin’s course, Roman Cities in the Near East, extends into WCMA’s galleries this spring. The course considers the role of material culture in the construction of Roman identity. In this latest exhibition in the Teaching With Art series a range of objects from a date-shaped glass flask to a mummified hand are on view for Professor Rubin’s students and museum visitors alike.
