AIA Lecturer: Guy Metraux

Affiliation: York University, Ontario

Guy Metraux has worked in Italy (on a large Roman villa in the Ager Falernus north of Naples), in Turkey (at Sardis), and in North Africa (at Utica and Carthage). His interests focus on Greek and Roman domestic architecture. M√©traux’s work in art history concentrates on how different professions ‚Äì artistic and scientific ‚Äì came together. His book on Greek medical science and art, Sculptors and Physicians in Fifth Century Greece, was awarded the Raymond Klibansky Prize by the Humanities and Social Sciences Federation. His future projects involve the parallel history of medicine and artistic representation in Greece and Rome. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University.
