A Day at the MET
Honors Class Visits MET
Professor Jim Watts and students in the Honors class Writing, Scripture Law visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art (MET) in New York City in early April. Students have been studying the invention of ancient writing systems and the use of normative written texts in the history of economic administration, religion, and law. In New York, they investigated the interaction between writing and art in the museum’s collections from ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, Greece, and Rome.
