Eleni Hasaki Presents at Pyrotechnology Symposium

Eleni Hasaki (Associate Professor, Anthropoloy and Classics) was invited to present her research on ancient Greek kiln pyrotechnology and the spatial economics of ceramic workshops at a Symposium titled “Ancient Hellenic Engineering and the Transformation of Earth through Fire” hosted by the Stevens Institute of Technology and the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) History Center. The symposium, supported by the Alexander S. Onassis Public Benefit Foundation (USA), brought together four scholars who explored the engineering behind the achievements of ancient Greek ceramics and metallurgy. Among its various activities the History Center of the IEEE hosts symposia on the history of engineering, including a recent symposium on the Athenian war vessel—the trireme—and its engineering and impact on history.
