Professor Gretel Rodríguez Publishes in "RES Anthropology and Aesthetics"

HIAA Professor Gretel Rodríguez publishes in RES Anthropology and Aesthetics.

The article, titled "The myth of Iphigenia in fourth-century funerary vases of southern Italy," explores a series of painted vases produced in the Greek colonies of Magna Graecia, in southern Italy, which depict variations of the myth of Iphigenia. The study combines archaeological evidence, literary analysis, and iconographic examination of the vases, to reveal the myth’s connections with female rituals and with colonial funerary practices.
