Topic: Classical Archaeology

George M. A. Hanfmann was Professor of Fine Arts at Harvard University, Curator of Classical Art at the Fogg Art Museum, and Field Director of the Sardis Excavations in Turkey.

The Hanfmann Lectureship was established in 1988 by the students and friends of Professor Hanfmann to honor him and his outstanding contributions to classical, especially Anatolian, archaeology and Greek and Roman art.

Scholars who hold the Hanfmann Lectureship specialize in one or more of the varied subjects to which Prof. Hanfmann made contributions, e.g. Etruscan sculpture, Roman sarcophagi, Anatolian city planning, Hellenistic survivals in Byzantine art, Near Eastern narrative, and ancient technology (especially metallurgy). The Hanfmann Lecturer is chosen by the Hanfmann Lectureship Subcommittee of the Lecture Program Committee.

The Hanfmann Lecturer annually visits one local society.
