The Savannah College of Art and Design’s architectural history department announces the first lecture of its 2010-11 series. Elizabeth Marlowe, an expert on Roman Art, will speak on Thursday, Sept. 30, 6:30 p.m., at the SCAD Student Center, 120 Montgomery St. The lecture is free and open to the public.
Marlowe’s talk, “Other Men’s Buildings: The Emperor Constantine and the City of Rome,” will consider how the Emperor Constantine appropriated his predecessor’s architectural program and made strategic interventions into the urban fabric of the City of Rome in order to play the traditional role of the imperial benefactor.
Elizabeth Marlowe is a visiting professor of Roman Art at Colgate University. She has also taught at the University of Maryland, College Park, and the American Academy in Rome. Marlowe has been awarded numerous fellowships, and her work has appeared in a variety of publications.
SCAD is one of the few universities in the United States to offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs specifically in architectural history. Students develop technical skills that directly complement architectural history and enrich their education in architectural history through participation in supplementary experiences, including internships, conference presentations, leading walking tours of historic Savannah and publishing.
Architectural historians conduct research and evaluation, help manage and preserve historic resources, and provide preservation planning and oversight to help restore and maintain the integrity of architectural treasures and their communities. They study the history of architecture all over the world and are thoughtful interpreters of the built environment as it relates to society.
