Please join us for a talk by visiting scholar Melissa Schlecht, University of Stuttgart.

Schlecht will present her project, Eruptive Art: The Depiction of Atmospheric Anomalies after Major Volcanic Eruptions in American Artworks of the 19th Century.

Her project focuses on “the reconstruction of the geographical extension of atmospheric anomalies after volcanic eruptions across the United States as well as their influence on artistic production.” Attendees will learn about the project and Schlecht’s work in both classical art history and digital humanities and the tools she used to analyze the images of her study.
