Rostovtzeff Lecture Series: Egyptian versus Greek in Late Antique Egypt: The Struggle of Coptic for an Official Status, IV
The Role of the Church in the Growth of Legal Coptic
This lecture will present an unpublished set of wooden tablets from Panopolis (now in the Louvre) attesting the use of Coptic for tax receipts in the 6th century and revisit the archive of Apa Abraam bishop of Hermonthis (c. 595-621) and of the monastery he founded—the largest group of legal Coptic texts prior to the Arab Conquest. These texts will lead us to examine the role of the Church and especially monasticism in the development of Coptic for official transactions.

AIA Lecture: Hidden in Plain Sight
Three Attic Vases from the Century Association in New York
At the end of the 19th century Thomas B. Clarke donated four ancient Greek vases to the venerable Century Association, a private club founded by members of the Hudson River School. This talk serves as a public debut for three of the vases —one black-figure and two red-figure—which have been all but lost to the scholarly and academic community since they entered the club's collection in 1891. I address briefly the phenomenon of private New York social clubs and their impressive art collections before turning to the iconography and the style of the vases themselves.
