Michael Koortbojian

M. Taylor Pyne Professor of Art and Archaeology




2N-5 Green Hall



Michael Koortbojian’s scholarship has focused not only on various aspects of Roman art, but on its study by Renaissance antiquarians. His publications include investigations of Roman sarcophagi, the relationships between texts and images, the role of historical imagery as an aspect of ideology, as well as the rise of the systematic study of the Classical past, and, in particular, the early collecting of ancient inscriptions as an aspect of a new Renaissance conception of historical method.

Koortbojian is co-teaching HUM 417: Historical Structures: Ancient Architecture’s Materials, Construction and Engineering with Branko Glisic in the Fall of 2022.
