Turning Art into History: the case of classical Athens
Athenian painted pottery offers many scenes that relate to daily life, but what sort of a history do they enable us to write? By focusing on the ways in which the scenes of aspects of daily life change over time, Professor Robin Osborn argues that we can see something of the complex ways in which aesthetics and politics interact in a society.
