Prof. Thomas Howe Co-hosts and Speaks at International Conference at his foundation in Italy

Professor Thomas Howe, Professor of Art and Art History and Chair of Art History, and Coordinatore Generale of the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation, will be co-hosting the third international conference sponsored by the Restoring Ancient Stabiae Foundation which presents recent discoveries and activity of the Foundation.

Howe will present three papers. The first will be on excavation of the largest well-preserved Roman ever discovered, that of the Great Peristyle of the Villa Arianna at Stabiae, excavated and studied under his direction in 2007-10. The second will present Southwestern’s and NITLE’s tentative project to develop with the Foundation a center for study abroad, with its ambition of lowering the cost of study abroad for students by developing synchronous distance learning. The program is being coordinated with Southwestern’s New-Paideia “Mediterranean Studies” cluster. The third will present the five principal “Adopt-a-Project” fundraising initiatives for launching further large scale excavations.
