Swetnam-Burland receives prestigious NEH summer fellowship

Congratulations to Professor Swetnam-Burland! 

Professor Swetnam-Burland received a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Stipend in 2012, a nationally-competitive award with an 8% funding ratio, for her project  The Nile Mosaic of Palestrina in Context.  As a result of this award, she was able to study the mosaic and the nearby "Fish Mosaic" in Palestrina, and traveled widely in Italy to look at other mosaics for comparison. While abroad, she also took many new pictures for the Pompeii and Herculaneum course she is teaching this Fall. Here, she is shown in the household shrine from the Villa San Marco at Stabiae.
