Join us at 9:30 am Pacific on Thursday, May 11th for the tenth lecture in the Badè Museum‘s virtual series, “Women & Gender Performance in the Ancient Middle East.” This program is hosted by the Badè Museum in partnership with the Archaeological Research Facility (ARF) at UC Berkeley.
Dr. Lauren McCormick will present “To See and Be Seen: Looking as a Central Yet Underappreciated Attribute of the Judean Pillar Figurine”
Lauren McCormick will graduate with a PhD in religious studies from Syracuse University this May 2023. Her dissertation is entitled: “My Eyes are Up Here: Guardian Iconography of the Judean Pillar Figurines.” She holds a Bachelor’s degree in religion from Rutgers University and a Master’s degrees in religion from both New York University and Duke University. Lauren works with written and visual sources from the biblical world and explores paint as a “fourth dimension of sculpture”. She and Elizabeth Knott are co-editing a forthcoming volume with Brepols Publishers entitled Ambiguity in the Ancient Near East and Lauren is currently also building a public-facing web exhibit for the Badè Museum that presents data collected via Reflectance Transformation Imaging. The web exhibit is called: “A Digital Initiative: Recoloring Ancient Artifacts”.
