Lincoln Leads in Material Culture

28 Feb 2017
Tags: Event,

Our penultimate Lincoln Leads seminar will take place on Tuesday 28 February and will focus on 'The Power of the Image'. Our panel includes:  

Dr Joshua Thomas (Lavery-Shuffrey Early Career Fellow in Roman Art and Archaeology) is Lincoln through-and-through - completing his undergraduate, Masters, DPhil and now his fellowship at Lincoln College. His DPhil in Classical Archaeology at Lincoln studied 'Art and Natural Science in the Hellenistic World'. He is involved in the NYU-led excavation and research project at Aphrodisias, a Greek city of the Roman period in South-West Turkey and will be talking about a few ancient works of art that help to demonstrate the importance of context when diagnosing the power of a particular image. 

Robert Kerr studied Modern Languages at Lincoln between 1971 and 1975. He has spent 39 years at Burberry in senior roles. His most recent position was Director of Customer Operations from 2007 until June 2016. He will discuss the history of the type of images used in Burberry advertising from the start of the 20th century to the present day.

Sarah Bochicchio graduated from Brown University last May with a thesis on the clothing choices of Queen Elizabeth I. She is now an MSt student in British and European History at Lincoln, looking at invocations of Elizabeth I by the late Stuart Queens, Mary II and Queen Anne. Outside of history, she is interested in fashion and arts journalism and, unsurprisingly, often writes about women, fashion, power, and identity.
