“Reflections on a 2016 Summer Archaeological Experience in Italy”
35 College Avenue, First Floor Parlor
Shannon Gilbert is a recent alumna (2018) of the Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program having completed a double major in Classics and Health Administration and a minor in Economics. During her time at Rutgers, she taught the Exploring History FIGS, conducted research through the Gardner Fellowship, and within the Honors Program was a Senior Ambassador, Peer Mentor, and Student Advisory Board member. Shannon is currently working in New York City as a Junior Account Manager for Health Science Communications, an Omnicom Health Company.
In her words, Shannon describes the photos taken during the summer of 2016 on a study abroad trip through the Rutgers Archaeological Field School in Italy.
“My attendance at which was made possible by the Ethel S. Cook Travel Grant (thank you!). Some depict the archaeological site we were digging at in Vacone and others come from the weekend excursions to Rome and Florence. The excavation photos depict a Roman villa from the late Republic or early Empire, and local rumor - though believed by the Rutgers archaeologists to be untrue - says it belonged to Horace (a.k.a. the poet who coined the phrase “Carpe Diem”). Vacone is a small (population 264), but beautiful hilltop town in the Sabina region. All photos were captured during the middle of a hot Italian summer - so hot that we could not dig past 1:00 PM each day. Thankfully these photos can’t sweat!”
The School of Arts and Sciences Honors Program invites Rutgers faculty, staff, students and the Honors Alumni community to join Shannon for the closing reception of her photographic exhibition on Friday, October 12, 2018 from 6:00-7:30pm in the parlor of 35 College Avenue, New Brunswick. Light refreshments will be served. The exhibit will be available from September 1 - October 15, 2018
