Event Details

About the talk:
Alexander’s conquest of the Persian Empire added a new chapter to what was already a long story of fruitful exchange between West Asia and the Mediterranean world. Archaeology shows that social and cultural transfer cushioned the sometimes rocky relations between Macedon and Greece and their eastern neighbours.  Through the riches of the Hermitage Collection it is possible to see how ancient peoples learned from each other.

About the speaker:
Professor Miller studied classics at the University of British Columbia (BA) and Oxford University (BA), and classical archaeology at Harvard University (AM, PhD) and the American School of Classical Studies at Athens. She has excavated in England, Egypt, Greece and Turkey. Before her arrival at the University of Sydney she held positions at McMaster University and the University of Toronto. Her research focuses on the interaction between late Archaic and Classical Greece and the Achaemenid Empire, which entails study of the extent and nature of Achaemenid Persian presence in Anatolia. The value of Attic ceramic iconography as a tool of social history is a long-standing interest.

Date: 28 February 2013
Time: 6.30pm for cheese and wine, 7.00pm 1 hour lecture begins
