About Seth Estrin

Seth Estrin is Assistant Professor of Art History at the University of Chicago, where he specializes in the art, archaeology, and visual cultures of ancient Greece. With research interests ranging from Minoan wall painting to inscribed epigram, his work crosses traditional boundaries between art historical and classical scholarship, and engages closely with ancient as well as contemporary theoretical discourses of representation and visual experience. His primary specialization is in Greek sculpture, and much of his work is focused on recovering the kinds of experiences — sensorial, cognitive, emotional — generated through interactions with sculpture in antiquity. He is currently working on a book on Classical Attic funerary monuments entitled Bodies Made Marble: Death, Grief, and Sculpture in Classical Athens. https://arthistory.uchicago.edu/faculty/profiles/estrin
