Spiro Hall

62356scr_fca2b88abe328f7Housing our computer center, and the Wagner College Planetarium, Spiro Hall is one of several classroom buildings on campus. Spiro Hall, like all our classroom buildings, has recently benefited from complete renovation. The Computer Center provides all students with access to a variety of computer facilities and includes fully equipped PC and Mac lab. Supplied with the latest technologies, these facilities are continuously updated. The Spiro Center serves as a resource for students, as either an addition or alternative to a student's personal computer. Staffed by a full time professional manager, the Center is also staffed by students who are able to assist with questions or problems.

The Wagner Planetarium is one of three in the New York City area. The other two are the Hayden Planetarium at the Museum of Natural History and the planetarium at Columbia University. The Planetarium is open to the public and serves as an educational tool, both for Wagner students, and for elementary, middle and high school students on Staten Island.

Nursing Mothers in Ancient Italy, Archaeology Society of Staten Island Lecture

December 3 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

The image of the woman and child is so familiar to us in Western art from representations of the Virgin Mary with the Christ child that we tend to take for granted its interpretation as a universal symbol of maternity, and of the close physical and emotional bond between mother and child. But the motif was not universal. In antiquity images of nursing mothers were absent in classical art in Athens and elsewhere in mainland Greece, while they were abundant in Italy, in the Etruscan cities, as well as the Greek cities of Magna Graecia and Sicily. The lecture will consider possible reasons for this situation.

About Topic
For centuries, the study of ancient civilizations was dominated by an approach that focused on the accomplishments and lives of men, and a few extraordinary women who succeeded in masculine spheres of activity. More contemporary approaches that integrate feminist theoretical perspectives have illuminated the significant roles of women in antiquity, and the social practices by which masculine and feminine roles were defined and performed. Rather than focusing on "Great Women" from the past, this talk will explore the limits of what we can know about the lives of ancient men and women from the perspective of material culture, by investigating the ways archaeologists try to understand the relationships between sexed bodies, gendered individuals, and grave goods in burial contexts.
