Feb 20
Symposia | Classical Coiffures and Couture

A symposia featuring Dr. Katherine Schwab, Fairfield University, and Dr. Mireille Lee, Vanderbilt University – Classical Coiffures and Couture: Hairstyles and Clothing in Ancient Athens.

Although the Parthenon is the most famous building of the ancient Acropolis, the Erechtheion was the most sacred, housing multiple cult places and shrines. The famous Caryatid porch, which employed six statues of ideal maidens as architectural supports, is the most distinctive–and enigmatic–part of the building. In this presentation, Dr. Katherine Schwab and Dr. Mireille Lee, will analyze the hairstyles and dress of the caryatids themselves to help elucidate the ideological functions of the statues and the building as a whole. The presentation will include a screening of a documentary produced by Dr. Schwab, in which she recreated the hairstyles of the caryatids using Fairfield student models.
