The Two Fridas
Calling all Artists, Art Enthusiasts, and Art Curious!
Each Monday the CCC is going to share a brand-new art-focused lecture hosted by Sarah Titus. We want to know what you want to learn about, email firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us which artist, painting, era or style you would like to learn more about. Sarah will curate her lesson over the weekends, post a new video each Monday and field any questions you might have. Content comments are due by 5:00 on Fridays to give Sarah time to prep. We can’t wait to hear your ideas!
After teaching Classical Art and Archaeology for over a decade at the university level at the University of Washington, Pacific Lutheran University, the University of Puget Sound, and Utah State University Sarah is currently a faculty member in the Upper School History Department at the University School of Milwaukee. She has taught a wide variety of Art History courses including the Survey of Western Art, Roman Art, Greek Art and Archaeology, Etruscan Art, Gender and Sexuality in Roman Art, Art Ritual and Religion in Ancient Rome, Modern Art, and Art History Methodology and Theory.
Sarah earned her BA in Art from the University of Puget Sound, and her MA in Archaeological Studies from Yale University. She is currently finishing her Ph.D. in Art History at the University of Washington. Her dissertation, titled “Genetrix et mater superstitionum: The bulla as apotropaic device in Etruscan art,” develops a nuanced understanding of the concept of “apotropaic,” that is something that wards off evil, when applied to Etruscan art through an examination of the Etruscum aureum, a pendant commonly, but not exclusively worn around the neck, and referred to as a bulla.
Her research interests further include Greek art, Roman art of the Late Republic and Early Empire, ancient constructions of gender and sexuality, and ritual space and decoration.
