Yale professor discusses Bronze Age women at Bruce Museum

The Bruce Museum will host Yale Professor Karen Pollinger Foster Thursday June 19 for “Women in Minoan Art and Society,” a lecture devoted to women in Bronze Age civilization.

Dr. Foster is a specialist in the art and archeology of Bronze Age Aegean, with a focus on the interconnections of Egypt and Mesopotamia. She is the author of several books including the award-winning Civilizations of Ancient Iraq, co-authored with her husband and fellow Yale professor Benjamin Foster.

Dr. Foster’s presentation will include images of women, sculpture and other art from the time period, primarly taken from the palace as Knossos. The lecture will focus on the prominent roles women played in Minoan Crete, and their historical presense.

The event is scheduled to start at 8 p.m. and is sponsored by the Archaeological Associates of Greenwich (AAG). General admission is $15, but the AAG, Bruce Museum members and students with ID will be admitted without charge.
