WEBINAR: Hot and Cold, A Brief Geological & Climatic History of Antarctica
25 Jan

WEBINAR: Hot and Cold, A Brief Geological & Climatic History of Antarctica

Though largely covered in ice today, Antarctica has experienced temperate and even nearly tropical climates throughout much of the past several hundred million years. It has even harboured dinosaurs. Join this webinar to find out what we can learn about Antarctica through the geological record, even though ice obscures many details today.

ABOUT THE PRESENTER:
Galen Halverson is a professor of geology at McGill University. He reads the history of our planet from ancient rocks in order to understand how the Earth system has behaved over billions of years. His current research focuses on tectonics, climate change and the evolution of ocean chemistry in deep time and the conditions under which complex life originated. Galen has spent extensive time conducting field research in the Arctic and in deserts across the globe. He also previously worked in the Weddell Sea investigating the sedimentary consequences of the progressive collapse of the Larsen Ice Shelf.

WEBINAR: Caravaggio’s Self-Portraits, Mirroring the Modern Gaze
27 Jan

WEBINAR: Caravaggio’s Self-Portraits, Mirroring the Modern Gaze

Art is by definition self-reflexive, revealing as much or more about the artist as about the subject matter of the work. This insight, one very strongly tied to the modern perspective, was one Caravaggio explored from his earliest days as an artist.

Caravaggio’s frequent use of his own image, whether depicting religious or secular subjects, is fascinating for a number of reasons. The reason so often given, that this saved him having to pay or plead for another model is not an important one. From the beginning, as in the early self-portrait called the Sick Bacchus, Caravaggio’s inclusion of himself in his works reflected his fascination with the inevitable self-exploration that happens in art.

In this webinar, Classical Pursuits' Nella Cotrupi will examine a number of these self-portraits in context and explore the implications for our understanding of the artist and his oeuvre.
