Bonna Wescoat, a professor of art history at Emory University, will deliver a Hixson-Lied Visiting Scholar lecture at 5:30 p.m. Nov. 8 in the Richards Hall Auditorium.

Talks in the series are free and open to the public.

Wescoat’s research interests are directed toward ancient Greek art and architecture, particularly sacred architecture, and digital modeling to investigate the interaction of landscape, architecture and ritual experience. In addition to her monograph, “The Temple of Athena at Assos,” she has recently completed “Samothrace Vol. 9, Monuments of the Eastern Hill.” Her work now centers on the Sanctuary of the Great Gods on Samothrace, where she has directed excavations.

The Hixson-Lied Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series is underwritten by the Hixson-Lied Endowment, with additional support from other sources. The program brings notable artists, scholars and designers to the University of Nebraska; enhancing the education of our students and enriching the culture of the state by providing a way for the public to interact with luminaries in the fields of art, art history and design.
