Humanities Initiative Video Features Panel on Measuing and Mapping Space
On December 11, 2013, NYU's Humanities Project highlighted ISAW's current exhibition Measuring and Mapping Space, hosting a panel discussion exploring how ancient societies understood and visualized the world. Panelists included curatorial staff and faculty from ISAW as well as faculty and Ph.D. candidates from New York University and Harvard University. As the exhibition enters its final weeks, videos posted online of this discussion contribute to the experience of walking through the galleries and attending a guided tour.
Videos can be viewed of panelists Roberta Casagrande-Kim, exhibition curator, Alexander Jones, Professor of the History of the Exact Sciences in Antiquity at ISAW, Katharina Piechocki, Assistant Professor of Comparative Literature at Harvard University, and Ademide Adelusi-Adeluyi, Ph.D. Candidate in the Department of History at NYU.
