    Breton Langendorfer, Visiting Lecturer in Brown University’s History of Art and Architecture, will discuss his research in an informal talk.

    Breton Langendorfer is a scholar of the pre-Islamic Middle East, specializing in the art and visual culture of ancient Iraq, Iran, and Central Asia. He received his doctorate from the University of Pennsylvania in 2019, writing a dissertation which explored the connections between the depiction of city sieges in the Assyrian palace reliefs and mythic conceptualizations of cosmic entropy and dissolution in Mesopotamia. His current research projects focus on the Bronze Age cultures of the Iranian plateau, and the use of ornamental repetition and replication in Achaemenid art. Before arriving at Brown he taught at the University of New Hampshire and Colby-Sawyer College.

    Katina Lillios is an anthropological archaeologist interested in the ways people used material culture, the remains of the dead, and monuments to create, enhance, and challenge sociopolitical difference and inequality. She is intrigued by the ways that social phenomena and cultural values come to be materialized, and how their materiality triggers social action.

    Lillios is a Professor of Anthropology at the University of Iowa, and holds her degrees from Yale University (Ph.D. and M.A.) and Boston University (B.A.). Her areas of specialty are prehistoric Iberia, and mnemonics in the archaeological record.
