Through their scholarship, excavation and teaching Professors T. Leslie Shear, Jr., William A.P. Childs, and Hugo Meyer have developed and led the program of Classical art and archaeology at Princeton University, continuing the long-established tradition of excellence in the field.

The lectures, presented by four generations of their students, will celebrate their contributions by evoking the variety and breadth of their research and teaching, ranging from the critical analysis of archaeological finds to the theoretical exploration of Greco-Roman visual culture. The lectures will also pay tribute to Princeton’s unique integration of art historical study and excavation, textual analysis and historical context, which has positioned both the program and its graduates at the forefront of the field of Classical art and archaeology.
