The John C. Rouman Classical Lecture Series presents: Eric Poehler, Associate Professor of Classics, University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
Working from nearly two decades of experience in the streets of Pompeii, Professor Poehler presents the evidence for and the operation of the ancient city's traffic system through the eyes of Sabinus the Muleteer, a fictional cart driver. Seeing things from Sabinus' point of view brings the daily activities in the city to life. We witness the circulation of vehicles in the streets, the ruts they create and jostle through, the pedestrians who dart around them, giving us a sharper focus on the diverse network of streets in the ancient city.

Sculptor and ceramicist David Katz exploits the properties of wet clay to create complex web-like installations that push and pull against architectural elements, constructed spaces, and scaffolding. As the clay dries, cracks develop, exposing the fragile nature of the structural systems. Curated by Kristina Durocher, Director, Museum of Art of the University of New Hampshire
